HS2 PH2B Hybrid Bill

On Wednesday, 4 October, the Prime Minster announced the UK Government’s intention to cancel the HS2 route north of Birmingham.


The Government also published the Network North command paper which reaffirmed a commitment to better connect Manchester to Liverpool; and to deliver Northern Powerhouse Rail, including high-speed lines.


Prior to this decision the Government had introduced the High-Speed (Crewe – Manchester) Bill into Parliament which would have provided the legal permissions to build and operate the route between Crewe and Manchester.


Following the King’s Speech on Tuesday, 7 November, the Bill has been ‘carried forward’ into the next parliamentary session whilst the Government develops priorities for Network North and the delivery of Northern Powerhouse Rail.




Safeguarding remains in place with the announcement stating that safeguarding for Phase 2b will be amended by summer 2024, taking account of any land requirements for Northern Powerhouse Rail.

The Government has introduced the High Speed Rail (Crewe – Manchester) Bill into Parliament to seek the powers to build and operate the next section of the HS2 route, between Crewe and Manchester, with a connection to the West Coast Main Line to serve stations in Scotland and the North-West.


The Bill process could take a number of years and we’ll keep you updated you on its progress. You can find out more about it on our website at


We have written separately to people whose land or property is directly affected by our proposals.


Documents published alongside the Bill include:

  • An Environmental Statement that reports the environmental impacts of the planned new railway;
  • Parliamentary Plans and Sections, showing the works and land required for the construction and operation of the planned new railway.

These and the other Bill documents can be found at Here you can also find a list of the public libraries and local authority offices that hold the Bill documents for viewing.


Public consultations on the Environmental Statement and Equality Impact Assessment Report will be held between 25 January and 31 March 2022.


Information about the outcomes of consultations held on the new railway in 2018 (Working draft Environmental Statement and EQIA consultations) and 2020 (Western Leg Design Refinement Consultation) has also been published. Visit in the first instance to find out more.


Finally, we are holding a series of webinars over the next few weeks, where you will be able to ask questions about the planned new railway and the contents of the Bill. You can find details of these and register to attend at:


If you have any questions about the information contained above, please contact the HS2 Helpdesk at or on 08081 434 434.
