Update of the design of the Western Leg of Phase 2b: Manchester Airport (focus on the station)
Webinar (online) event
- Event date
Work is continuing to the design to ensure we can construct, maintain and operate the railway.
Hosted by the Phase 2b team, this webinar will focus on scheme development in this area including, the proposal the Secretary of State for Transport is currently consulting on to make changes to the design of Manchester Airport High Speed station.
These changes include:
- the addition of two platforms (giving a total of four) to accommodate future service growth and the use of HS2 infrastructure as part of Northern Powerhouse Rail;
- the provision of a future Metro link stop at the HS2 station;
- and changes to the road network around the station.
We will be holding a separate webinar focusing on scheme development from Hulseheath to the Airport on 21 October 2020.
We will be publishing video recordings of the session online, so if you are not able to listen live you can still learn about each topic through a dedicated playlist on the HS2 YouTube channel.
