So much money is being pissed up the wall on #HS2
Maybe a better idea is to spend that money on a nationalised broadband infrastructure, electrifying the railways and building nationally owned nuclear power plants for cheap and clean energy.
#NorthernPowerhouseRail director @TimWood1950 says we welcome this sensible and timely move by @transportgovuk.
It ensures the proposed #HS2 route through @WestYorkshireCA is protected so there will be fewer problems when the time for construction comes.
@EileenPeck Without HS2 we simply don’t have the rail capacity for the future to get people & freight off roads and cut transport CO2 emissions to tackle GLOBAL #ClimateChange. Stopping #HS2 isn’t ‘green’, it’s exactly the opposite. You’re doing the roads lobby’s job for it.
The advantage is, most regions start to benefit from the piece of infrastructure long before it is built. Birmingham, for instance, has experienced visible development since the #UK government first announced that #HS2 would get to the city.

At our, Board @DanJarvisMP said
The cancellation/delay #HS2 2b East has a serious knock on effect which undermines Northern Powerhouse Rail #Sheffield #Leeds
The @GovUK needs to guarantee that those major projects can be built in full & without delay
Instead of #HS2 why not infrastructure useful to millions and genuinely environmentally beneficial - #LocalPublicTransport #FreePublicTransport?

❓Asking what the econ. impact would be for the region if the Eastern Leg was not delivered in full
📈He's right, HS2 is essential to our economic recovery and Building Back Better
Tree stump on ancient woodland floor at edge of removed woodland that now can't soak up water from lack of trees. In the distance saplings & dead trees can't soak up water & sit in clay soil & translocated ancient soil #HS2ltd shows you what trees did. A valuable lesson @bbcmtd
