A new report, published today, details the costly impact to Britain if High Speed 2 is derailed. ‘Great Britain: connected or not?’, which was developed by the HSR Industry Leaders Group, outlines how failing to build HS2 will leave a clogged Britain, unable to meet its full potential.
The devastating effects of the recent storms on the UK transport system, and especially on our rail networks, has been well documented. It has left numerous towns without power, thousands of people without access to transport, and the Devon railway quite literally suspended in mid-air.
Britain is on the cusp of a new dawn for our transport infrastructure. From Crossrail to HS2, we are transforming our transport landscape for the better, creating a lasting legacy for future generations and putting Britain at the forefront of rail engineering and innovation once again.
