HS2 Phase 2b – Design Refinement Consultation

Thursday, 6 June 2019

The Government have announced a consultation on some possible route changes to Phase 2b of HS2.

Today the Government has announced the launch of a consultation on 11 proposed changes to the design of Phase 2b, the section of the HS2 route from Crewe to Manchester and West Midlands to Leeds.

These changes are being proposed following design development, environmental assessment, feedback to consultations and ongoing engagement and are a mixture of relocations and realignments, new infrastructure and the introduction of new scope to the HS2 design.

This includes alterations to the route in the area of Junction 10 of the M42 (Tamworth), a new maintenance facility at Austrey, revisions to the route between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Diseworth, and a new railhead facility at Ashby.
