High Speed 2

High Speed 2 (HS2) is the new railway from London to Birmingham. The railway’s London terminus will be at Euston.

The High Speed 2 (London – West Midlands) Act was passed in February 2017. This gives the Government permission to build the railway. Construction is set to last until 2033.
