Scrapping HS2 could fund 28 transport schemes, report claims


All of the above schemes would be blighted by the same 'negative' impacts which are levelled at the HS2 scheme. No infrastructure project whether it be a local, regional or national will be exempt from environmental impact, mismanagement or poor public perception. To give credence to shady organisations such as the TPA is a miss-step in the reporting descision making of the NCE in my opinion. Perhaps the TPA could release the C/B analysis that should be provided with each of the alternative schemes, then a reasoned debate over the merits of each scheme can be made against the HS2 project.
