Bickenhill beetroot

with one comment

In the November 2016 HS2 train service specification ‘for modelling purposes’, the Bickenhill parkway (‘Birmingham Interchange’) station is shown as having a total of just 5 trains calling each hour in each direction.

Presumably, between London and Birmingham, there would be an awkward 20 – 20 – 40 minute interval between trains.

DfT, HS2 phase 2b, modelled train service specification, M18 route, Nov 2016

Just one train to / from the eastern leg would call at Bickenhill gare des betteraves.

What a shocking waste of £65 billion, this project is.

  1. As later notes show, HS2 does not have a clue how the service will operate.
    This latest draft daft Dft projection suggests that in the short section between the Y junction and the Berm… / Birmingham Triangle they can accommodate 21tph in each direction even though these are, according to, high speed sections.
    We all know that “consultations” are only about finding out “how stupid we are”.
