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


There is always the risk with these projects that the shiny end, ie London, will benefit first and the end point (lets generalise and call this - the North) never actually reaches the intended target due to time, cost or governmental changes. One solution would be to start at the intended target and build south. There is more chance of the scheme reaching fruition if the link with London is the last piece in the puzzle, whether its linked with HS1 or not. Or is that just me being cynical?
