The HS2 extension which has been announced this morning will bypass Kidsgrove and Stoke, yet provide a South bound station at Crewe. This will mean with current connection times that residents of Kidsgrove will have a HS2 connection at Crewe just 10 mins journey time from Kidsgrove.
The map of the proposed route will also take this line away from Kidsgrove which will ensure that there will be minimal environment damage to the local area. The route which is very much in the proposed stage will be constructed and in operation by 2032. This will enable residents of the local area a connection with London in under an hour.
