The details for the northern section of HS2 were published last week. The Government has also announced its decision to suspend the development of a spur connecting HS2 with Heathrow Airport, subject to the outcome of the Airport Commission.
“From day one of Phase One, the new high-speed line will improve services to Heathrow Airport, via a change of trains at the new Old Oak Common hub. This will speed passengers to the airport in just 11 minutes. Subject to the Airports Commission report on maintaining the UK’s international connectivity, HS2 could also be extended to serve Heathrow directly. A Heathrow Spur is not in the scope of this Command Paper but could be included in legislation for Phase Two if the timing and the conclusions of the Airports Commission support it. A further consultation would be needed. Work is well underway to introduce the legislation this year which will make Phase One a reality”, the report stated. http://highspeedrail.dft.gov.uk
