A three-phase plan to connect the HS2 station at Toton, between Derby and Nottingham, into local and regional transport networks has been published by councils and business leaders.
The access strategy for Toton station – now dubbed the HS2 East Midlands Hub – envisages investments being delivered over 30 years, with the first tranche of improvements delivered within ten years and up and running before the HS2 station opens.
The station forms part of HS2 phase 2b, which is being reviewed by the Government as part of a wider rail plan for the Midlands and the North (LTT 21 Feb & 06 Mar).
The station access proposals are part of a wider strategy to improve access to a cluster of sites that will be managed by a proposed development corporation. These are: the hub station; housing at Toton and Chetwynd; an innovation campus; the soon-to-close Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station site (which will become a zero carbon technology and energy hub); the new East Midlands Gateway Logistics Park; and East Midlands Airport.
Measures proposed for delivery within the next ten years are:
Phase two of the programme, to be delivered within 20 years, comprises:
Phase three, to be delivered within 30 years, comprises:
The proposals are backed by the D2N2 local enterprise partnership; Derby City Council; Derbyshire County Council; East Midlands Airport; East Midlands Councils; Highways England; Leicestershire County Council; Midlands Connect; the Midlands Engine; Nottingham City Council; and Nottinghamshire County Council.
