New Member: HS25 Nov 18
We are delighted to welcome HS2 as the latest Get It Right Initiative member.
High Speed Two (HS2) is the new railway that will be the backbone of Britain's transport network delivering 345 miles of new high-speed track to connect the city centers of London, Birmingham, Manchester, and Leeds. HS2 trains will cross over onto the existing railway to also serve further towns and cities in the north of England and Scotland.
- HS2 is expected to carry over 300,000 passengers a day - around 100 million a year, when fully operational.
- Up to 48 HS2 trains will run on the rail network every hour.
- Over 25 stations will be served directly.
- Intercity journey times will be cut. For example, the journey between London and Manchester will be cut in half to just over an hour.
