HS2 East - Realising the Full Promise of HS2

10 June 2015

HS2 East has published a summary document which was launched at an event in Leeds last week attended by EMC Chairman Jon Collins, along with the Chairs of D2N2 and Leicester and Leicestershire LEPs, where Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin confirmed that the full 'Y Network' - including the Eastern Leg of HS2 - will be built. This will connect with the London-West Midlands route to the east of Birmingham and then follow the M42 corridor north-east towards Derby and Nottingham. The summary document provides further analysis of the economic benefits of the Eastern Leg of HS2.
