HS2 project

As a brand new railway line, HS2 is the best option for taking the pressure off the existing network. it adds extra capacity where it is needed most. Building HS2 frees up a massive amount of space on the existing railway by placing long distance services on their own pair of tracks. Once HS2 is operating, services can run much closer together, meaning there can be more rush hour trains, helping to relieve overcrowding.

Once the full network is operational we expect HS2 trains to carry over 300,000 passengers a day. HS2 is future proofed, by making sure the network can grow with increased demand.

When complete, HS2 will add greater capacity along the UK’s current main North-South rail routes; West Coast, East Coast and Midland main lines. This means more train services across the country, more seats for passengers and fewer delays.
