The Integrated Rail Plan set out plans for a new high speed line between the West and East Midlands, connecting to an electrified Midland Main Line near East Midlands Parkway (HS2 East). Following the publication of the Integrated Rail Plan, DfT asked HS2 Ltd and Network Rail to work together to develop options on how to take forward HS2 East. This work is ongoing.
