HS2: capacity and connectivity

A useful study of the prospects for High Speed 2, the proposed new rail route north out of London, has been published by the Independent Transport Commission – a rare example of a report by a group with expertise but without a prior position in the current debate. The ITC identifies the two  benefits of HS2 as being increased rail capacity and improved connectivity. Their conclusion is broadly favourable to HS2 provided local investment is planned to take advantage of the new line.
