Plans for a High-Speed Rail Line Between London and Scotland

The proposed £34bn ($55bn) line, slated for completion by 2030, would reduce travel time between London and Glasgow to two-and-a-quarter hours.

"Network Rail's proposed new line linking Glasgow and Edinburgh with London, on which trains could travel as fast as 200mph, would also serve Manchester, Liverpool, Preston and Birmingham..."

"...The new line would cut the journey between London and Birmingham to 45 minutes, from a best time of one hour and 22 minutes currently."

"Rail passengers would also be able to get to Liverpool in one hour and 23 minutes, from two hours and eight minutes now."
