High Speed UK - Links to the South West



No dedicated HSUK routes are proposed within the South-West.  However, HSUK’s proposed 4-tracking of key West Midlands routes focussed upon Birmingham New Street, coupled with connections further north to the HSUK trunk routes, will transform links from Bristol and the West Country to other UK regions.


With these enhancements in place, HSUK will offer the following key benefits for the South-West:


Bristol directly connected by means of high speed, high frequency and high quality services to all other UK primary cities.

Existing Plymouth-Edinburgh service upgraded to high speed as HSUK01 and extended to Glasgow – thereby linking 7 UK primary cities.

Direct HSUK service from Bristol & Cardiff to Heathrow.
