HS2 and car miles driven

leave a comment »

With the HS2 Y network in full operation and ‘released capacity’ on other lines, car travel would be reduced by 1.2 million miles [1.93 million kilometres] every day, according to HS2 Ltd.

This would equate to an annual reduction in car travel of ~438 million miles.

According to the RAC Foundation, GB car traffic totalled 255.0 billion miles in the year 2018.

It would appear that the yearly reduction in annual car mileage from building the full HS2 network would amount to ~0.17 percent of the 2018 total.
