High Speed 2 promoter to work on Scottish extension

Transport secretary Justine Greening has told high speed rail company HS2 Ltd to work with the Scottish Government on proposals to extend the route north of the border.

Scotland’s transport minister Keith Brown and cabinet secretary for infrastructure and capital investment Alex Neil met with Greening and scottish secretary Michael Moore at the Scottish Parliament on Friday.

Greening agreed that HS2 Ltd would engage directly with the Scottish Government on proposals for HS2 ahead of a further meeting between the ministers in the autumn.

Current proposals would see the Y shaped HS2 network terminate at Leeds and Manchester. Trains would then travel on the conventional rail network to reach Edinburgh and Glasgow.
