HS2 is a new high speed railway that will improve connectivity between the big cities in the North of the UK, the Midlands and London; providing faster, less crowded and more reliable train travel. It will also free up extra capacity on the existing railway line so that can offer a better service too. HS2 will do much more than just build and operate a railway network: it will be a catalyst for growth across the country, delivering economic growth, strengthening productivity and creating thousands of jobs in a rebalanced Britain.
