Four thousand seats ‘gone missing’


In the 5 pm to 6 pm evening peak, HS2 would provide 15,700 seats from Euston, on completion of the Y network in 2033 — according to the July 2017 Strategic Case.

But the October 2013 Strategic Case gave the Y network full capability as 19,800 seats.

So, around 4,000 seats, or one-fifth of HS2’s entire capacity, seems to have ‘gone missing’.

Also notable is the ‘downlift’ in Phase One capacity, from an ‘initial’ 8,300 seats, to 6,900.
