The HS2 - How It Will Affect You

The HS2 How It Will Affect You The HS2 is a proposed new ultra-high-speed rail line designed to carry trains at up to 250 mph in the UK. It's planned Y shape route, will run trains between London and Birmingham and Manchester and Leeds. The UK Government say that the line would cost about £33 billion to build. But this is the so-called 'Present Value' not the real cash cost - and it excludes the cost of trains. The government says 'the first phase (London to Birmingham) alone would support the creation of more than 40,000 jobs'. This is made up as follows: • 9000 construction jobs. • 1500 operational jobs of which 340 are in London and 420 in Birmingham. • 30,300 from regeneration around the stations, of which 22,000 in London and 8,300 in Birmingham. 70% of the 'permanent' jobs will be in London.
