The final report examining the potential boost to the economy and job opportunities to come from the HS2 project is set to launch today.
The leader of Birmingham City Council Sir Albert Bore, who is also a member of the HS2 Growth Taskforce will unveil the 'Get Ready' report at the city's Science Museum in Digbeth.
He will present the report to MP Stephen Hammond, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport.
The task force was set up last year to look at how the plans for the high-speed rail line linking London to the north via Birmingham could be exploited to create the biggest number of opportunities in the regions it passes through.
