Thread: HS2 to be scrapped

    Re: HS2 to be scrapped

    It should be scrapped and the money put towards fibre broadband to every property; I'm sure there would be plenty of cash left over for other infrastructure projects like regional Metros which would benefit far more people.

    Plenty of work going on at the Birmingham end, not just HS2 construction, either. Office blocks shooting up and plenty of redevelopment by the central library. Another decade and Greater London will be a suburb of Birmingham. Who would have thought!

    Why this particularly?

Were you in support of such spending in the latter years of the decade just ended when it was part of Labour party policy?
    I think it has to be a careful balancing act, I wouldn't want to launch into any big forms of HS2 type infrastructure projects, I think there's a need to look at those area's and communities in the UK that needs it most, and have suffered over the years from the lack of investment.
