NCE Live News Updates Monday 17 March: Higgins calls for HS2 to reach North quicker - but drops link to HS1


Perhaps HS2 should only go to Brent Cross and to the Trafford shopping centre in Manchester to save money. Crazy of course. Yet this is exactly what is proposed for Sheffield with a station an additional half an hour away from the city centre adjacent to the Meadowhall shopping centre. The time savings created by HS2 are almost completely negated by this location. There is an existing dis-used rail route right through the Sheffield centre with lower cost and higher economic benefit. 'Dear Mr Higgins, what shall I do? I wanted to go to London but I ended up in Crewe'.
