Paul Plummer, Chief Executive of the Rail Delivery Group, representing train companies and Network Rail, said:

“HS2 will become a very important part of Britain’s railway for decades to come, and will play a huge part in managing the capacity challenge that we face. Rail companies are already delivering the £50billion plus Railway Upgrade Plan to build the bigger, better, more modern network that Britain needs to carry even more people and freight safely, quickly, reliably and efficiently, which includes the start of construction on HS2.

“The rail industry is working hard to ensure HS2 is seamlessly integrated with the existing network as one railway when the new line opens in 2026.”
