Railways: Construction

Volume 508: debated on Wednesday 7 April 2010

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport how long on average it takes to travel from each of (a) Glasgow, (b) Aberdeen, (c) Norwich, (d) Exeter, (e) Middlesbrough, (f) Liverpool and (g) Milton Keynes to each of (i) Brussels, (ii) Madrid, (iii) Chicago and (iv) Tokyo; and what the equivalent average travel times are expected to be following completion of the HS2 core network. (325700)

The Department for Transport does not hold this information in the form requested.

The completion of the potential HS2 core network would accelerate surface access to certain UK airports, but actual time savings would depend on rail and airline service patterns and timetabling at that time.
