HS2 PLANS FOR 225MPH TRAINS
Government launched the process to build new trains for HS2 on January 20, confirming it is seeking a deal worth £2.75 billion for up to 60 trains capable of 225mph running. Royal Assent for Phase 1 of the railway (between London and
Birmingham, due to open in 2026) is expected soon. Building work is due to begin on the Birmingham- London section this spring. “Launching the hunt for a manufacturer of these trains is a major step towards Britain getting a new railway which will carry over 300,000 people a day, improve connections between our great cities, generate jobs, and help us build an economy that works for all,” said Secretary of State for
Transport Chris Grayling.
