HS2: Letter to The Guardian

You are here: Home / Blog / Politics / HS2: Letter to The Guardian
30
Oct
I sent this letter into The Guardian and hope it will be published tomorrow:

Dear Sir

In my advanced years I sometimes fail to see the train for the lines.

If HS2 is so important to connect Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham might it not
be more appropriate to link these cities first. London doesn't need more trains
or lines. The original HS2 was to be centred on linking to a hub at Heathrow
which still makes more sense.

Yours aye

Derek Wyatt

The letter was mildly edited and made The Guardian this morning (31st October 2013)

• If HS2 is so important to connect Manchester, Leeds and Birmingham, might it not be more appropriate to link these cities first? London doesn't need more trains or lines. The original HS2 was to be centred on linking to a hub at Heathrow, which still makes more sense.
