Dear Funmi Alonge,

I understand you require further clarification to my request, which was:

"Can you please advise of the route miles, and single track miles, for the following sections, or if more convenient, shorter sections:

1. Phase 1 - London to Birmingham and WCML junction near Lichfield
2. Phase 2a - junction with Phase 1 to Crewe
3. Phase 2b - Crewe to Manchester
4. HS2 Golborne Link - the now cancelled leg to Golborne
5. HS2 East - from the earlier phases to the East Midlands
6. HS2 to Yorkshire - the original eastern branch from the earlier phases to Leeds and Church Fenton"

I understand from your request you were unclear about "HS2 East - from the earlier phases to the East Midlands". I'm struggling to clarify this without repeating the same words in a different order, however I am referencing the currently proposed route towards Nottingham, from the point where is leaves the earlier phases, surely a junction with another phase is proposed, and the distance required is from there to the end of the HS2 infrastructure.

I look forward to your prompt response. Please note I have also numbered the sections listed above for the sake of clarity as these appear to have been lost at some stage in the original correspondence.

Yours sincerely,

Andy Soames
