Businesses push government to complete HS2 railway

Post by David Benton » Wed Jun 26, 2019 2:17 am

Business leaders are calling on the next prime minister to commit to delivering HS2 in full.

In an open letter, more than 20 business leaders say continued backing for the next phase of the £56bn high-speed rail network project is vital.

The only train trips I regret are the ones I didn't take.

"The next prime minister" would seem to be Boris Johnson, as nearly as I can tell. Are his views on HS2 known?

sorry ,excon90,missed your question.All I know is he sometimes cycles to work. That may suggest he is supportive of "green transport",or it may mean he likes fresh air and exercise! George would know more.
