Scrapping HS2 could fund 28 transport schemes, report claims


Putting aside political motivations, this is what some of us have been saying for a very long time for practical reasons. If you have £55bn to spend on improving the country's transport infrastructure, there are many more socially beneficial ways of doing this than creating a single new link between London and Birmingham. We need to resist the inexorable growth of the London Powerhouse, sucking in infrastructure investment , and campaign for serious transport investment for the rest of the country as an equal priority.
