It is claimed that HS2 will galvanise the Midlands economy – yet it will not create a single direct link between any cities of the East and West Midlands. HSUK’s full integration with the existing network will allow the creation of a ‘Midlands Ring’, directly interlinking all the principal cities of the Midlands.
The Midlands Ring strategy is set out in HSUK’s Regional Rail Strategies covering the West and East Midlands. Official ‘thinking’ on Midlands rail development is set out in Midlands Connect’s ‘Our Routes to Growth’. For further info, please follow these links:
