HS2 launches public consultation on Phase 2b route plans
HS2 has launched public consultations on the Phase 2b route for high-speed railway between the West Midlands, Manchester and Leeds.
The 10-week consultations will give communities the chance to respond to HS2’s plans and designs, and give feedback on HS2’s working draft environmental statement and working draft equality impact assessment report.
HS2 will visit locations across the route to talk to people and businesses as well as affected residents across the Phase 2b route, with the consultations finishing on 21 December.
“We actively encourage people to have their say on the plans we have published today.”
She continued: “HS2 is coming to the north and it will reap significant benefits as a result. High speed rail will play a crucial role in rebalancing Britain’s economy; driving business growth, stimulating investment and creating jobs right across the country.” HS2 launches public consultation on Phase 2b route plans
