HS2: Changing Britain

Wigan has been confirmed as the North West’s gateway to high speed rail. It has been hailed by business leaders as a major inward investment opportunity for the borough.

Wigan will be the gateway to high speed rail with the West Coast Mainline joining the high speed network just to the south of Wigan and connecting to Crewe, Birmingham, then London Euston.

Being a HS2 station will support the regeneration of the town centre, particularly around the town’s stations and the Wigan Pier Quarter.
