Transforming accessibility across Britain

5 November, 2010

Watch our slide show below to see how a national HSR network could reach across Britain.

Even though there will be a limited number of HSR stations (the large yellow stars), HSR services will extend onto the existing rail network to serve a wide range of destinations (the large white stars). And if we were to upgrade the existing network further, primarily by extending route electrification beyond existing plans, then an additional set of towns and cities right across the country could benefit from HSR services (the small white stars).

These graphics are based on the national HSR network set out in Greengauge 21’s Fast Forward strategy.
