HS2 is coming to the North West

Construction of the Phase One route between Birmingham and London is now well under way with 7,000 jobs already supported through the project.

When construction peaks, as the full network progresses, that figure is forecast to rise to 30,000.

Public consultations on HS2 are being supported by a programme of station pop- up events, which will see teams from HS2 Ltd visit locations across the North.
