High Speed Rail

Jason today welcomed the announcement by the Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin of the preferred route phase two HS2 high-speed rail network which will see new stations at Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester.

As a frequent rail user, Jason is delighted that HS2 will cut journey times from London to Leeds to 80 minutes, with London to Sheffield being just 69 minutes. The new lines will help to generate jobs, rebalance the economy and secure the country’s future prosperity. As Vice-Chairman of the APPG for Rail in the North, Jason will make the case for HS2 which will free up capacity on existing rail lines for more commuter, rural and freight services, and mean fewer cars and lorries on our roads, cutting congestion and carbon emissions.
