Shape files for the preferred route of Phase 2b of the proposed HS2
In November 2016, the Department of Transport released two ESRI shape files that provide details of the preferred route of Phase 2b of the proposed HS2. Here are links to ESRI shape files for the leg from the West Midlands to Leeds and for the leg from Crewe to Manchester.
These files have been released with the Open Government Licence.
You can also obtain these files from a data.gov.uk web page.
I've converted some aspects of this shape file to KML.
