East Midlands HS2 Growth Strategy - Emerging Strategy: Fast Track to Growth

East Midlands HS2 Growth Strategy - Emerging Strategy: Fast Track to Growth

EMC and D2N2 have published a document which sets out our initial plans to use HS2 in the East Midlands to create an extra 74,000 jobs and generate an additional £4 billion of GVA by 2042.

The document represents work in progress. Our final growth strategy will be published in July 2017 and will include a prioritised investment proposition for key development sites and interventions. Key initial priorities include:  

  • Development of a northern-facing ‘classic compatible’ link at the Hub Station to boost connectivity between the Midlands Engine and the Northern Powerhouse;
  • A comprehensive re-modelling of Trent Junction south of Nottingham to meet the long term passenger and freight requirements of both HS2 and Midlands Connect;
  • The development of a ‘Mass Transit Strategy’ as part of the Derby-Nottingham Metro initiative, with the Hub Station at its heart; and
  • Effective access from the A52 and a long term approach to managing traffic growth on the M1.

The document can be viewed here.
