HS2 Ltd has considered a number of tunnel options in the East Midlands Hub area including those set out in the Working Draft Environmental Statement Alternatives Report. However, tunnel options in this area have not been progressed due to the significant length of the tunnel, significant cost impacts and flood risk. HS2 Ltd will continue to work with the local community to minimise the impact of HS2, including appropriate mitigation where necessary.
