High Speed 2 phase two announcement – Passenger Focus responds
28 March 2013
Today the Department for Transport has published its initial preferred route, station and depot options for the second phase of High Speed 2, which may end up in Leeds and Manchester.
Passenger Focus chief executive Anthony Smith said:
“Passengers will welcome this latest news on HS2, which will radically increase space and new services for the north. It could also lead to better connectivity between towns and cities – not just London routes. Almost as important is the space freed up on existing routes which will open up more new journey opportunities.”
