From the Crossrail interchange, the high speed line will follow the existing Chiltern railway corridor out of London. From West Ruislip it would pass over the M25 on viaduct, tunnel under Amersham and follow the A413 past Wendover. The cost of the first 190 km to Birmingham is put at £15·8 to £17·4bn, broadly similar to Crossrail.
