star this property answer text <p>It is too early to set the service pattern for the GB rail network in the 2020s and beyond. However, one of the key principles that will guide future service patterns is that all towns or cities which currently have a direct service to London will retain broadly comparable or better services once HS2 is complete. The future design, calling pattern and frequency of network services once HS2 opens will be developed openly, and in partnership. </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>This assessment will be made as different service options for the post-HS2 railway are developed. A wide range of potential service options are open, ranging from relatively evolutionary change to widespread service redesign. These issues were outlined in the Network Rail report Better Connections published in July 2013, and available on their website (<a href="http://www.networkrail.co.uk/improvements/high-speed-rail/" target="_blank">http://www.networkrail.co.uk/improvements/high-speed-rail/</a>). </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Department is working with Network Rail to design the next stage of the service planning work for rail services once HS2 Phase 1 opens, and looking ahead to Phase 2. The Department will make further announcements shortly. </p> more like this
