By putting direct inter-city services on dedicated high speed lines, #HS2 will allow more #train services to run on 3 of the country’s most heavily congested rail routes; West Coast Main Line, East Coast Main Line and Midland Main Line (1/3) Map showing the HS2 route and the resulting capacity released on the West Coast, East Coast and Midland mainlines.
This presents a once in a generation opportunity to improve services on these routes, including passenger services to locations not directly served by #HS2. This will help reduce overcrowding by offering more seats for more passengers on more trains across the country (2/3) Graphic showing how commuter seats leaving Manchester Piccadilly in rush hour will increase from 3,490 to 8,620 and Leeds from 1,720 to 4,860.
By freeing up capacity on our current #railways, #HS2 will help take hundreds of lorries off the roads every day as more freight can move to #rail. This will create more space for drivers on our motorways, make road journeys safer and help the fight against #climatechange (3/3) Motorway busy with traffic and Heavy Goods Vehicles.
