HS2

Probably not familiar to many on here, but this will be the site of the new high speed rail line linking Birmingham with London with trains capable of travelling up to 250mph (more than 400kph)



The site today taken from a conventional train coming in to town.

We should soon know the exact design of the new terminus in the centre of Birmingham, plus another HS2 station 10 miles away on the edge of the city serving the airport, National Exhibition Centre and the Genting Arena.

Below are some indicative designs which have been circulation for some time.









Plans are already being drawn up to connect the new stations with the Metro system.

More up-to-date view from today with the Beyond the Tracks festival (if it returns, then they will have to find somewhere else to hold it).

Just after 2pm in the afternoon (coming back from Aston Hall). Not too fused by the crowds, just the fun fair rides and the stage!

Meanwhile over at Aston Hall like it was 1643!

Thanks Sandblast for these updates/overviews. Your first picture is an interesting optical illusion by chance. It can be seen in two ways and I misinterpreted it first time i.e. the new HSBC building can appear to be entirely behind the Alpha Tower, yet of course it's not.

It would be great for someone to give an updated aerial photo from the same position now as your last shot of the Arena Central site.
