HS2 is a new high speed railway linking up London, the Midlands and the North, serving eight of Britain’s 10 largest cities. Work has commenced on Phase One of HS2 which will provide a dedicated high-speed rail service between London, Birmingham and the West Midlands.

HS2 Phase One will open between 2029 and 2033 and run from London to Birmingham over 134 miles, through 31 miles of tunnels and over 10 miles of viaducts delivering quicker journeys on more trains with more seats. 22% of the new line will cross Warwickshire.

Warwickshire County Council has established dedicated resources to deal with the dissemination of information about the project as it impacts on Warwickshire and its businesses and residents:
