HS2 information event.

Phase 2b Mid-2018 information events 

In July 2017, the Secretary of State for Transport confirmed the preferred route for HS2 from Crewe to Manchester and the West Midlands to Leeds (known as Phase 2b).

Since then, a series of Information events were held in September 2017 to discuss how the design for the route would be developed and the environmental impacts assessed. In June and July 2018, we will be holding a number of information events, at which we will be sharing further details of the evolving design for the railway, including our proposals for:

  • the location of construction sites
  • infrastructure associated with the railway
  • the realignment of major roads and public rights of way.

The new information we are sharing is work in progress and may change as we continue to refine the design, complete environmental assessments and take into consideration further feedback.

We hope you will take the opportunity to view and discuss our emerging plans with members of the team at one of the events.

While these dates are confirmed, please check this page closer to the event in case of any last-minute changes to event dates or venues.

Should any of these events need to change due to unforeseen circumstances, we will endeavour to inform the local community and other interested parties as soon as possible.
