HS2 is a new high-speed railway that will connect London, the Midlands, the North and Scotland with 25 stations, including eight of the UK’s 10 largest cities and connecting around 30 million people.
Padova. An all-Italian spirit flows inside a super-technological high-speed line from London to the West Midlands. It is the Venetian company Aristonecvi, led by Leopoldo Destro, that is actually a supplier of cables for English high-speed.
“These days we are supplying cables for building high-speed train infrastructure in England, one of the most ambitious projects in the world, connecting the south-east of England from London to Birmingham, Then touches on New Castle. Then on to Scotland. This is a 555 km railway infrastructure and which is expected to be completed in 2033 ” explains the CEO of Aristonqui Destro.
“We will supply cables not only to build infrastructure, to power trains, but also to set up new stations, which will be underground, allowing trains to come into cities without slowing down at the entrance. Will get it.” He says it again.
HS2 is a new high-speed railway linking London, the Midlands, the North and Scotland, serving 25 stations including eight of the UK’s 10 largest cities and connecting around 30 million people.
The construction of the new railway is divided into three phases: the first phase that connects London and the West Midlands; Phase 2a connects the West Midlands and the North via Crewe; and Phase 2B which completes the railway to Manchester and Leeds.
The Phase I route will have more miles of tunnel than the Crossrail and a longer bridge than the Fourth Rail Bridge.
The new connecting line will run on 140 miles of dedicated track. Four new stations and two new depots will also be built. 25,300 workers will be needed to complete the construction. Removing intercity trains from the existing rail network will free up more space for commuter and freight services, which will help reduce congestion and take trucks off the road.
Improved connectivity between cities and regions is driving more investment in the Midlands and North. The high-speed line will be the answer to reducing carbon emissions for long-distance travel, emitting 17 times less carbon than an equivalent domestic flight and 7 times less carbon than equivalent car travel.
