A key leg of the high-speed rail line is axed but government says upgrades will improve services.

Sir John Peace, chair of Midlands Connect said: “Although these plans are different in some respects to what we’d expected, there are a lot of positives in here and lots of things to be excited about – a new high-speed connection between Birmingham and East Midlands Parkway, direct links onto HS2 for Derby, Nottingham, and Chesterfield and a commitment to the Midlands Rail Hub.”
