Transport campaigners respond to HS2 progress report

28 June 2016

Campaign for Better Transport has reacted to the publication today of the National Audit Office Progress with preparations for High Speed 2 report.

James MacColl, Head of Campaigns, said:

"The Government clearly needs to keep a close eye on progress with HS2. With future Government finances now under even more uncertainty, the emphasis must be on getting the most from our investment. To do this, it must urgently work closely with local transport authorities to ensure HS2 joins up properly with the existing rail network and other public transport. Without this, the benefits of the scheme could be badly compromised."

ENDS
