High Speed Two (HS2)


High Speed 2 (HS2) is a planned high-speed railway in the United Kingdom. Some sections of the railway are under construction, while other sections are awaiting approval. At 345 miles long, the new high-speed track will connect the city centres of London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds.

When complete, HS2 will be the backbone of Britain’s transport network – helping to bridge the north-south divide. HS2 will free up space on the UK’s already congested rail lines, relieving overcrowding and improving reliability for millions of people using Britain’s railways.
