The city centres of London, Birmingham, Manchester, and Leeds will be connected by 345 miles of new high-speed railway track. HS2 is expected to carry over 300,000 passengers a day – around 100 million a year, when fully operational. High speed trains will continue their journey onto the existing rail network to serve many more places. Find out where HS2 goes by viewing the route map.
The vision comes with a passionate commitment to value-for-money – we’re acutely aware that it’s public money we’re spending. And this philosophy inspires other aspects of the project – as we ensure the fair and effective management of processes, budgets, risks and contingencies.
