High Speed Two is the new railway that will be the backbone of Britain’s transport network.

The route

  • 345 miles of new high-speed track will connect the city centres 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.

The train service

  • 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.

Key dates

Construction is starting on Phase One which will link London and Birmingham by 2026. Phase Two will run from the West Midlands to Manchester in the west and Leeds in the east completing the network by 2033.
