Engineers’ views on high speed policy sought

The ICE is urging its members to feed their views into its response to the to the government’s High Speed Rail policy consultation.

Deadline for submitting views to the ICE is 27 May. These will be then used to help the ICE form a consultation response that represents the view of the industry. So far over 200 ICE members have submitted comments or attended one of the consultation events.

High Speed Rail

The High Speed Rail consultation, launched in February, invites stakeholders to have their say on the development of the proposed £32bn rail network. If built, the network will increase rail capacity to meet rising demand for long-distance rail travel, ease overcrowding on existing railways and slash journey times between major cities.

The ICE is calling for civil engineers right across the country to share their views so it can form a consultation response that draws on the membership’s expertise and helps inform government decisions on this project.
