Scrap HS2

The campaign to Scrap HS2 continues, as costs for this unnecessary project have escalated from £32.7bn to nearly £56bn. We have held campaign days at London Euston, Birmingham New Street and many other areas affected by the proposed new line.
Whilst ground works have started in some areas, not a single piece of track has been laid and many contracts are yet to be signed off.

The money could be better spent on many other transport projects across the country. We will continue to campaign for this white elephant to be scrapped as it does not represent good value for taxpayers.

In August 2017 we visited mid-Cheshire (picture below) to meet residents affected by HS2. This project will yield little to no economic benefit and likely to do nothing to help the ‘northern powerhouse’. Destroying people’s homes for an out-of-date ill-thought-through infrastructure project is not the best use of taxpayers’ money and must be scrapped.
