About the maps

This set of maps provides a detailed depiction of the the government’s initial preferred route for HS2 Phase Two West Midlands to Leeds and Manchester line of route, as published on 28 January 2013. Maps released as part of the July 2013 HS2 Phase Two consultation on the proposed line of route from the West Midlands to Manchester, Leeds and beyond have been published separately.

Route maps

The overall route is shown on the two route maps: ‘Route map West Midlands to Leeds’ and ‘Route map West Midlands to Manchester’. The route maps also illustrate how the route has been split into route sections and gives the section reference number for each section.

Line of route plan and profile maps

The plan and profile maps show the specific line of the route on Ordnance Survey mapping background. The bottom portion of each map depicts the profile of the line in relation to the ground - for example, showing where the line is in a cutting or on an embankment, bridge or viaduct. They also show indicative road diversions and junction layouts.

The plan and profile maps are organised by route section, and each section has a key map showing the extent covered by the plan and profile maps. The scale used for each map is shown on the map and varies depending on rural or urban location.
