East Midlands HS2 Partnership

Following the agreement of the East Midlands HS2 Growth Strategy in September 2017, HS2 Governance in the East Midlands has been reviewed to become more delivery focussed.

 

Access to Toton, the HS2 East Midlands Hub Report

The Access to the HS2 East Midlands Hub study is a comprehensive, multi-modal transport plan that will create a raft of new or improved connections to the HS2 East Midlands Hub from towns and cities across the region. These plans will support, accelerate and maximise the opportunities presented by the arrival of High Speed Two (HS2) in the East Midlands.  A copy of the report (May 2020) can be found here .

HS2 - Uniting the Country - Connecting the Midlands Prospectus

The East and the West Midlands have come together to produce an HS2 prospectus, highlighting the enormous economic, social and environmental benefits high speed rail will bring to the Midlands.  The document has been created by a partnership comprising East Midlands Councils, the West Midlands Combined Authority, the Constellation Partnership (Crewe, Stoke & Staffordshire), Midlands Connect and Midlands Engine, who are working together to make the strongest possible case for HS2 to be delivered in its entirety.  The prospectus can be found here.
