High-Speed 2 (HS2) is the planned rail network between London, the West Midlands, and the North. The first phase is under way, which will link the capital to Birmingham, creating significant disruptions for Southam.

We hope to be able to keep the people of Southam informed of the work as much as possible and any information we have will be posted on this page.
