Letters: Why video-conferencing won’t cut demand for high speed rail


re letter from Professor David Johnston, I would be interested in his projected costs and time scale for the HS2 to arrive in Glasgow so we from up North can benefit from his projected one hour saving. I find it incredible that people are putting forward the benefits of HS2 as a link to London, the apparent hub, yet in Scotland we have questionable bus and train links and do not seem to be able to manage a simple tram network in Edinburgh. So explain the benefits of HS2 to the people up North and their daily commute to work.
