UK: HS2 Plus (Higgins Report)

Source: High Speed Two (HS2) Limited (UK)

From the Foreword:

(There are) two main transport challenges we face as a country: the lack of capacity, particularly but not exclusively south of Birmingham; and the poor connectivity in the North, not just between the region and London, but also east-west between Liverpool and Manchester, Manchester and Leeds, Leeds and Hull. Those challenges have direct consequences, not just for the economy as a whole, but for people’s daily experience and aspirations.

I believe HS2 can be the start of addressing those issues, if it keeps to a number of key principles. It must:
• stand the test of time;
• be the right strategic answer;
• be integrated with existing and future transport services;
• maximise the value added to local and national economies; and
• be a catalyst for change, both nationally and locally. These are the principles against which I have judged the proposals contained in this report.
