JOURNEY TIME COST

HSUK’s 4 track spine has sufficient capacity to bring high speed services to all principal UK cities.

HS2’s 2 tracks can only deliver high speed services to a select group of primary cities; most other cities will be left bypassed, and blighted by reduced intercity services on the existing main lines.



 


For further details of HS2 Ltd’s failure to deliver real and measurable capacity improvements across the national network, and also of projected intercity service reductions with HS2 in place, please follow these links:

“No economic case for HS2... it will destroy jobs and force businesses to close.”
