Transport Secretary confirms HS2 routes for the north - RDG comment

Rail Delivery Group (RDG) chief executive Paul Plummer has welcomed today's (17 July) government announcement of high-speed rail routes to the north-west, East Midlands and Yorkshire.

Paul Plummer said:

“Rail companies are working together to ensure that HS2 – a vital addition to the more modern railway Britain needs – is integrated seamlessly into the network. New high-speed lines will add much-needed space for more and faster trains as we invest to improve now and for the long term, connecting the country, creating long-term high-skilled jobs and making journeys better.”
