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.
The new tunnel segments for the latest section of HS2 are on the move. Freight services are on the move to HS2's London Logistics Hub
