HS2 is clearly going to affect many people. Understanding the impact and how it may affect any particular property requires some good plans. HS2 have published detailed plans for the London to Birmingham sectionand the route (also showing cuttings/tunnels etc) for the Birmingham to Manchester to leeds section.
Many people involved in property have printed the maps and some of us with mapping capabilities have been transferring the route onto our own systems. I have spoken to HS2 requesting the line of the railway electronically so that it can be mapped accurately. It appears many local authorities have made the same request. As yet HS2 haven't decided what to do and whether to release the data. I would have thought this is a "no brainer". Hoping they make the right decision.
