High-speed rail is the worldwide standard for long-distance, inter-city rail travel.  Britain is now investing in high-speed rail to create space on overcrowded networks and to enable large numbers of people to move efficiently.   This requires a new network, High Speed Two, which will take long-distance travellers onto new high-speed trains with fewer stops, enabling them to make their journeys more quickly.  The wider benefits of High Speed Two will be substantial, whether in economic terms, improved connections, an exciting and efficient travel experience or more comfortable, reliable local rail services.
