Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

DE­LAYS will not ex­ist on the high-speed rail­way HS2 when it opens in 2026, the firm build­ing it claims.

Video, lasers and acous­tic sen­sors will be fit­ted to trains to assess the con­di­tion of rails and over­head power ca­bles.

Engi­neers will be able to iden­tify prob­lems and do main­te­nance be­fore a fault af­fects punc­tu­al­ity.

A spokesman for HS2 Ltd said late trains will be “a thing of the past”.
