An exhibition showing detailed plans for the proposed high speed rail link from London to Manchester opens today.

HS2 will link the cities in the second phase of the scheme which is due to open in 21 years time.

The HS2 Growth Taskforce will be in Manchester as part of a series of roadshows designed to ensure regions maximise the benefits of high speed rail.
