High Speed Rail
Plans are progressing to bring new high speed rail connectivity to Yorkshire in the form of HS2 (north-south) and HS3 (east-west). The Chamber supports this investment, not just because it will improve journey times but because it will provide much needed additional capacity to our already overcrowded regional and national rail network. Our dedicated section on high speed rail contains more information.
