1. HS2 | Phase 1 | London to West Midlands | 225 km (140 mi) | UC

    HS2 Phase 1 contracts have been awarded, and the final route into Manchester, Sheffield and Leeds have been finalised. In addition to this, Phase 2A into Crewe will be complete by 2027, a year after phase 1 is due to complete and have trains operating in 2026.

    I want to keep this thread for construction updates on phase 1 only.
