Alternative recommendations for HS2’s route and station proposals in South Yorkshire have been published by the Government.

The new option proposes that HS2 services between London and Sheffield would take a spur off the new north-south high speed line and travel directly to the existing Sheffield Midland station using the existing railway line.

There is also the future option of HS2 services extending onwards to the existing Meadowhall station, Rotherham, or Barnsley or the development of a parkway station somewhere in South Yorkshire.

The alternative route is likely to have an impact on Rotherham. Local people are encouraged to find out more by attending one of the public meetings being held by HS2 below:

  • Friday 22 July, 12.30pm to 8pm at Bramley Village Hall, Cross Street, Bramley, S66 2SA
  • Tuesday 26 July, 12.30pm to 8pm at Aston Parish Council Village Hall, Rosegarth Avenue, Aston, S26 2DD
