Check the HS2 route. You can check maps to see the planned routes for the High Speed Two ( HS2 ) rail network. The route for Phase 1 has been confirmed. Plans for Phases 2a and 2b aren't confirmed but are unlikely to change significantly.
Similarly, how long is the hs2 route?
The proposed London to Birmingham line will be about 140 miles (225km) long and the total Y network will be around 330 miles (531km) long.
Is hs2 Cancelled?
HS2 could be cancelled before the end of 2019, government says. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has thrown the future of HS2 into doubt by launching an independent review into the controversial project, which could see it cancelled before the end of 2019.
Will hs2 affect house prices?
It's clear that the impact of HS2 on property prices is still somewhat unknown. However, it's likely that in the short term, properties closest to the planned route will be negatively affected. However, over the long-term houses near to the line (but not directly on it) are likely to see their property values increase.
