High Speed 2 (HS2) is a planned high-speed railway in the United Kingdom. Sections were approved in 2017 and await construction, while other sections await approval. When completed, HS2 will directly connect London, Birmingham, the East Midlands, Leeds and Manchester. Scheduled to open in phases between 2026 and 2033, high-speed trains will travel up to 362 km/h (225 mph) on 330 miles (530 km) of track. HS2 will be the second high-speed rail line in Britain, the first being High Speed 1 (HS1), which connects London to the Channel Tunnel, commissioned in the mid-2000s.
