Consultation description

The Secretary of State for Transport is consulting on 11 proposed design refinements to the HS2 Phase 2b route. This design refinement consultation (DRC) is a key milestone on the path leading up to hybrid bill deposit.

The development of a major engineering project such as HS2 involves a series of design refinements right up until the point of construction. When refining the design, HS2 Ltd looks to make improvements, where possible, on environmental, technical, service and cost aspects of the scheme.

This consultation asks for views, based on the information included in the ‘Design refinement consultation’ document, which will be independently analysed and reported, and then considered by the Secretary of State when making his decision about the final route.

There are 11 proposed changes to the design of Phase 2b route on which HS2 Ltd would like to hear your views.

Read the consultation document and supporting documents on this page and respond online with your views.

Other ways to respond are given in the ‘Ways to respond’ section below the supporting documents.

Responses to the consultation will be considered as the design and environmental statement are finalised for deposit in Parliament as part of the hybrid bill.

Events

From June to July 2019, HS2 Ltd will be holding a series of public information events to support the consultation.
