Alison Munro has been re-appointed as chief executive of HS2 Ltd, the government-backed company responsible for delivering a high speed rail network between London and the North of England.
Munro has been at the head of HS2 Ltd since it was established in 2009. She will now lead it through the hybrid bill process to Royal Assent for the line from London to the West Midlands, while also leading work to decide the routes linking to Manchester, Leeds and direct to Heathrow.
She will receive a salary in the range £120,000 - £124,999.
Her reappointment confirms the senior team following the appointment of ICE past president Doug Oakervee as chairman earlier this year.
