New proposed route for HS2

Monday, 30 January 2017 11:24

Branch looks at effects for Cheshire.

The new preferred route for HS2 has been published and the amended route between Middlewich and Northwich will now come closer to Northwich and follow the A556.

CPRE Cheshire had been approached by Mid Cheshire Against HS2 to contribute a £1,000 towards a commissioned report of a Ground Engineering Assessment by TerraConsult Ltd. However, an anonymous donation has been made to fund the report.

For further information please see the government’s High Speed Two Phase 2b Crewe to Manchester, West Midlands to Leeds, Route Refinement Consultation 2016, Consultation document, especially pages 14-16 which discuss the amended route between Middlewich and Northwich.
