U.K. to Publish Revised HS2 High-Speed Rail Route Tomorrow

U.K. Transport Secretary Philip Hammond will publish the exact route of the HS2 high-speech rail route from London to Birmingham tomorrow, saying new adjustments mean it will have a less severe impact on the environment.

The line was announced earlier this year by the Labour government, which lost power in elections in May. Labour also announced plans for a Y-shaped network of high-speed lines that may later link to northern England and Scotland.
