Groundsure HS2 and Crossrail Report

The Groundsure commercial Highspeed 2 and Crossrail report* contains detailed information regarding the proximity of a property to both the Highspeed 2 (HS2) and Crossrail networks.

The first phase of the proposed HS2 network, due to open in 2026, will connect London and Birmingham. The second phase, due for 2032 will extend the route north to both Leeds and Manchester. Both phases of the route pass right through the heart of the Severn Trent region. Prior to the route opening, there will be years of disruption to local residents during the construction phase, including the compulsory purchase of property in the vicinity of the route.

Crossrail comprises over 100km of new railway across London and the South East, including nine new stations. Once it opens in 2018, it will provide a 10% increase to London’s rail capacity.
