HS2 could be axed for Leeds and Sheffield in bid to save £10billion | The Star


Today the Financial Times reported that the high-speed rail network, planned to connect London to Birmingham, Manchester, Sheffield and Leeds with a superfast train line, could be slashed in scope.

 

It would mean the trains would no longer serve north of the Midlands, while the trains themselves would be reduced in speed by 40mph in an effort to bring the project’s spiraling costs under control.

One thought on “HS2 could be axed for Leeds and Sheffield in bid to save £10billion | The Star

  1. The railway in Sheffield has always been the poor relation in all of my 60 years.

    The east and west coasts have always been better funded and as for London you would think the UK is London for how many rail projects have they received.

    At one point Eurostar was supposed to be coming to Sheffield but did not.

    If any HS2 line is to come North then it should be to Sheffield and then Leeds.

    If it does not come to Sheffield then you may as well scrap the Sheffield Rail Station.
