Coronavirus (COVID-19):

Coronavirus remains a serious health risk. It’s important to stay cautious and help protect yourself and others. Please continue to follow national government advice.

Overview

The UK’s railways support 1.25 billion passenger journeys per year and growing levels of rail freight. Railways connect people to jobs and businesses to markets in a way that’s good for the environment and reduces road congestion.

However, capacity is almost full. The government is proposing to provide this rail capacity though a new High Speed Rail Network. HS2 will reduce Birmingham to London journey times to 49 minutes, and phase two would reduce travel times to Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds and Manchester.
