This web page is from www.thehs2.com,
a project to document the HS2.
The underlying map on this page has been obtained from Google.
A coloured line
has been superimposed on the map.
The coloured line shows a depiction of the post consultation route
of Phase 1 of the proposed HS2.
It should be accurate as it is derived from data provided by the
Department for Transport.
There are separate maps showing the route of Phase 2 of the HS2.
The coloured line is in 663 sections.
I've used the following colours for the sections:
||fuchsia: "at grade"
||(level with nearby land)
||yellow: "fill" (embankment)
||violet: west and east sides are different
|green: "green tunnel"
If you click on a section,
some details about that section will appear.

The generation of this map uses data that has been provided
A Department for Transport web page
provides the post consultation route
as a shape file for use with GiS software.
The shape file is released with an
Open Government Licence.
I've converted this shape file to a KML file.
This KML is used to generate the coloured line.
Tweaking the map, printing it or using it on your page
You can use the +/- buttons to zoom in/out, i.e., to
show the map in more/less detail.
And you can hold the mouse down and then drag the mouse
if you wish to move to a different part of the map.
If the map isn't quite what you are after,
you can tweak the map
adding nature areas
and/or public rights of way,
the centering of the map,
the width of the map,
the height of the map
the level of zooming.
Use the following link to
tweak the map.
If you click that link,
you will also find out how to print this map
or use this map on your own web page.
If the coloured line does not appear,
then maybe the proposed HS2 does not pass through the area shown by the map.
You can use the - button to zoom out.
