Our Portfolio


Project Client Project Capex (£m) Financial Close
High Speed 1 UK Department of Transport 6.16bn September 2017

In September 2017 Equitix acquired a 35% stake in the flagship High Speed 1 rail infrastructure project, one of the largest to be procured in the UK to date in terms of capital expenditure.

The concession runs for 23 years from financial close, expiring in 2040, and it includes the operation and management of 109km of high speed rail line from London to the Channel Tunnel and four stations on route: St Pancras, Stratford, Ebbsfleet and Ashford.

HS 1 is the only international passenger line in the UK and is key link between London and major European capital cities (Paris and Brussels). It offers desirable fast commuter trains in and out of London’s city centre.

The project achieved construction completion on time in 2007 and has been operating successfully since then.

Revenues from domestic and international train paths equate to c.90% of total project revenues. The remaining 10% is driven by property and ancillary income from the four stations, predominantly St Pancras which has an annual footfall of 50 million alone and has been voted the no.1 train station in the UK every year since 2007.
