Crewe Hub: An opportunity to increase capacity, transform connectivity and improve performance, while rejuvenating the wider economy.
Crewe Hub is a key junction on the existing rail network and will provide strategically important connectivity to the HS2 network. As Sir David Higgins set out in his report’ Re-balancing Britain’ there is an opportunity to enhance the connectivity, increase HS2 services and address the challenges of growth and train delays due to constrained infrastructure not fit to accommodate the changed service requirements or growing rail market.
Railways are important for economic growth, creating jobs and building sustainable communities. There is an opportunity to rejuvenate the economy by improving the train service available. Over the last few years Network Rail has been looking at what infrastructure and investment would be needed to provide more capacity, better connectivity, more resilience, improve access to facilities at the Station and provide a High Speed Hub at Crewe. The benefit could be felt far beyond Crewe to all of the connecting routes and locations served.
