star this property answer text <p>No net loss of biodiversity is a complex and important issue. It is, therefore, correct that Natural England takes the time necessary to produce a thorough independent review for Government and that the Government takes the time to make a considered response. We hope to publish both Natural England’s review and the Government’s report before the end of the HS2 Select Committee in the Lords.</p><p> </p> more like this

They have announced the two-hourly service will be enhanced by four extra journeys from May 2015 for an experimental period of three years. There are no UK Government plans to extend these extra services to Birmingham as the half-hourly frequency between Shrewsbury and Birmingham is considered sufficient to meet passenger demand.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The average journey time of a Pendolino between Euston and Birmingham city centre (New Street) is 1 hour 21 minutes. As set out in the Strategic Case for HS2 (October 2013), the average journey time of an HS2 train between Euston and Birmingham city centre (Curzon Street) will be 49 minutes – a saving of 32 minutes.</p><p> </p><p>The maximum line speed for a Pendolino travelling on the West Coast Main line is 125mph. HS2 is designed for a top speed of 250mph. Plans envisage services running at up to 225mph, which is becoming the standard capability for new high speed trains.</p><p> </p><p>There is no station for Handsacre on either the existing network or the HS2 network. The nearest relevant station is Crewe, for which comparative journey times are 1 hour 30 minutes for current services and 55 minutes by HS2 services – a saving of 35 minutes.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>No decision has yet been made on Phase Two as we are still considering the responses to the public consultation. Sir David Higgins's proposals would see the Government's preferred route to Crewe, which formed part of the recent Phase Two consultation, constructed earlier. Therefore, it is not anticipated that Sir David's proposal alone would affect the route through the Lichfield constituency. However, the route of Phase Two through the Lichfield constituency is clearly subject to the outcomes of the recent public consultation.</p><p> </p><p>The powers for Phase Two, including the section of line to Crewe, are proposed to be sought via a second hybrid Bill. As such the connection to the West Coast Main Line as part of the Phase One Bill is still required to allow Phase One to operate effectively and to enable destinations such as Stafford to benefit from high speed services. </p><p> </p> more like this
