star this property question text To ask Her Majesty’s Government how long they expect journey times to be for HS2 trains between London and (1) Crewe, (2) Edinburgh, and (3) Glasgow, when Phases 1 and 2A are completed, compared with the present Pendolino services, and whether they have estimated the time saving that would be gained if the HS2 trains incorporated a tilting mechanism and so could be used on the West Coast Main Line North of Crewe; and if so, what is that time saving. more like this

star this property answer text <p>The proposed HS2 rolling stock tender specification does not preclude a bidder offering a tilting train solution. However, no tilting trains currently operate faster than 250km/h. HS2 Ltd assumes that tilting rolling stock could achieve a maximum operating speed on the high speed network of 300km/h rather than 360km/h for non-tilting rolling stock. This lower maximum operating speed would increase journey times on the dedicated HS2 network and could reduce network capacity. HS2 Ltd has assumed a number of minor line speed improvements on the northern West Coast Main Line for non-tilting rolling stock.</p><p> </p><p>HS2 will not serve Edinburgh until Phase 2B opens. Existing and projected estimated journey times from London Euston are as follows:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> </ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"><strong>Crewe </strong></ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> <strong>Glasgow</strong></ins></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> WCML Pendolino</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> 1hr30</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">4hr17 </ins></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial">Phase 1 non-tilt</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">1h08 </ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> 4h00</ins></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> Phase 1 tilt</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial">Approx 1hr11 </ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> Approx 4h00</ins></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> Phase 2A non-tilt</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> 0h55</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> 3h48</ins></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> Phase 2A tilt</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> Approx1h01</ins></p></td><td><p><ins class="ministerial"> Approx 3h51</ins></p></td></tr></tbody></table><table><tbody><tr><td><p><del class="ministerial"><strong>Crewe</strong></del></p></td><td><p><del class="ministerial"><strong>Glasgow</strong></del></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><del class="ministerial">WCML Pendolino</del></p></td><td><p><del class="ministerial">1h30</del></p></td><td><p><del class="ministerial">4h17</del></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><del class="ministerial">Phase 1 non-tilt</del></p></td><td><p><del class="ministerial">1h08</del></p></td><td><p><del class="ministerial">4h00</del></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><del class="ministerial">Phase 1 tilt</del></p></td><td><p><del class="ministerial">Approx 1h11</del></p></td><td><p><del class="ministerial">Approx 4h00</del></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><del class="ministerial">Phase 2A non-tilt</del></p></td><td><p><del class="ministerial">0h55</del></p></td><td><p><del class="ministerial">3h48</del></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><del class="ministerial">Phase 2A tilt</del></p></td><td><p><del class="ministerial">Approx 1h01</del></p></td><td><p><del class="ministerial">Approx 3h51</del></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p>
