Response to High Speed 2 public consultation (July 2011)

The Department for Transport undertook a public consultation on the phase 1 proposals of High Speed 2 Ltd for the development of a High Speed 2 railway line, this consultation running until 29 July 2011.

Our response to this High Speed 2 consultation proposed a station stop on the High Speed 2 line by the name of North West London Parkway (NWLP). Subsequently, the proposed station name has changed to become Aylesbury Interchange. To the proposal for a station between Princes Risborough and Aylesbury has been added an alternative location to the north west of Aylesbury. We have withdrawn the proposal for a Crossrail service to Birmingham via High Speed 2. An introductory diagrammatic map has been added. Material concerning an HS2 to HS1 link has been separated from the proposal. The core elements of the proposal remain unchanged. We have changed our name from Rail Planning Consulting to RailAble and RailEnable.

Current proposals are as documented in our article Proposal for Aylesbury Interchange on High Speed 2

The consultation period ends at midnight on 29 July 2011.

The Government will be undertaking an analysis of every response and a summary of the responses will be published in the usual way for public consultations.

The Secretary of State for Transport will announce the outcome of the consultation process and the Government's final decisions on its strategy for high speed rail in December 2011.

Since then there has been no further communication. However to date we have not promoted our proposal other than by making it available on the internet.
