High Speed 2 (Hs2)

Latest Developments

HS2 Phase 2a

The Bill to authorise the building of Phase 2a from Birmingham to Crewe is currently going through the Parliamentary process. An Additional Provisions Bill was deposited on 8 February 2019, proposing a number of changes to the powers in the bill. This results from requests made by petitioners to the Select Committee in Spring 2018 and further design development, principally in relation to utility works.

A public consultation on the Additional Provisions Bill will run until 29 March 2019.

The Parish Council is reviewing the Additional Provisions and liaising with neighbouring Parishes and with Cheshire East to decide if a petition is required.

Crewe Hub Station:

When HS2 is completed, two high speed trains each hour, in each direction, are due to make a stop at Crewe providing high speed services to London. The Government and Cheshire East Council are supportive of building a major Hub station site to enable more HS2 trains to stop at Crewe, improving connectivity.

Cheshire East Council issued the Crewe Station Hub Area Action Plan Development Strategy on 12 February 2019. A Public Consultation is being held on the Development Strategy.

The Consultation runs until midnight on 26 March 2019.
