Scrapping HS2 could fund 28 transport schemes, report claims


Although the anticipated cost of HS2 apparently keeps rising, what's to say that the rest of these proposed schemes won't rise in price similarly? There does not appear to be much in the way of detailed costing behind each of the scheme. I imagine if the TPA's approach was adopted, they would then soon be railing against the "profligate" spending of each individual scheme and pick them off one by one., particularly as they too increased in cost as the full extent of each scheme was understood and defined.
