£170 billion HS2 could INCREASE journey times if it is not completed


Recommended Posts

When the railway first opens between London and Birmingham, expected between 2029 and 2033, its terminus in the capital will be Old Oak Common, in the western suburbs.

HS2 trains are not expected to run to Euston until 2041 at the earliest and, with ministers concerned about the cost of the project, there are doubts the scheme will ever go ahead.

Khan said: “Terminating the service at Old Oak Common would be a short-sighted decision which will have long term implications, significantly downgrading the value of HS2 as a high-speed connection and leaving a ridiculous situation where a ‘high speed’ journey between Birmingham and central London could take as long as the existing route, if not longer.”

For £170 billion we could have had a tunnel to Ireland, a tunnel to the Netherlands, a moon colony, and built a million homes.
