HS2 changes made. The routes now sit under 4 relations as follows:

1986960 - HS2 Phase 1 - London to West Midlands (No changes - Route as per Hybrid Bill)
6748946 - HS2 Phase 2a - West Midlands to Crewe (Jan 2016 preferred route)
6775224 - HS2 Phase 2b - Crewe to Manchester (Nov 2016 preferred route)
6775258 - HS2 Phase 2b - West Midlands to Leeds (Nov 2016 preferred route)

The following original relations (and their members) have been deleted:
4124774 - Manchester spur
4124756 - Leeds spur
4125262 - Depots. (New depot area shape files are not available as far as I can see and the old data is no longer correct)

Any queries please get in touch.

I've got the Nov 16 shape files for 2b but haven’t looked at them yet. I would expect them to be the same alignments as shown on the Nov 16 plans. What they didn’t release (at least not separately) are the station and maintenance yard land take polygons.

Should get to taking a look before the weekend.

North of there actually, up through Mexborough.

The bit I'd be missing is the route plan (beyond a schematic) - that's why I asked Andy (the original Andy*) what the latest 2b route plans covered.



* confusing, but could be worse, it was talking about wikidata and OSM Carto rendering as well :)
