HS2 railhead in Calvert enables construction materials to be delivered to site by rail_HS2-VL-27291-DSC 0043

HS2 has opened a railhead near the village of Calvert, which will help the high speed rail project continue to deliver construction material by rail to its biggest Buckinghamshire site without putting extra lorries on local roads. The new railhead – the second to be built at Calvert – will allow HS2 to run an extra 150 aggregate trains over the next 2 months, saving 8,300 tonnes of carbon and taking the equivalent of 24,000 trucks off the roads.
