In July 2017, the Secretary of State for Transport confirmed the preferred route for HS2 from Crewe to Manchester and the West Midlands to Leeds (known as Phase 2b).
We are holding a series of information events in June and July 2018, at which we will be sharing further details of the evolving design for the railway.
This will include our proposals for the location of construction sites, infrastructure associated with the railway and the realignment of major roads and public rights of way.
The new information we are sharing is work in progress and may change as we continue to refine the design, complete environmental assessments and take into consideration further feedback.
We hope you will take the opportunity to view and discuss our emerging plans with members of the team at one of the events.
If you are unable to attend any of the events the new information on the evolving design will be available at www.hs2.org.uk from Monday 4 June.
We would like to invite you to attend your nearest event which is in Tamworth.
While this date is confirmed, please check the website www.hs2.org.uk closer to the event in case of any last-minute changes to the date or venue.
Should there be any changes due to unforeseen circumstances, we will endeavour to inform the local community and other interested parties as soon as possible.
