HS2 Rail line revision

11 Jul 2016

HS2 Ltd is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Transport, responsible for developing the UK’s new high speed rail network.

The company have published a revised approach to their phase two rail line rerouting it further east largely following the M18 motorway.

HS2 chairman David Higgins said that he felt HS2 “reached the best solution for South Yorkshire”.

The revised alignment reduces the cost of the second phase by around £1bn.
The HS2 line is expected to be completed by 2026.
