UK PM Boris Johnson to Review HS2 HSR line (Leeds, Manchester)

"Mr Johnson has also put HS2 in doubt, because he has already begun a review of the project amid predictions that the cost of building of high speed lines between London, Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds could rise by £30 billion to around £87 billion." https://www.railnews.co.uk/news/2019/07 ... prime.html
