HS2 SIGN IS RATHER PRE­SUMP­TU­OUS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

CHRIS DENZAR Ful­mer

COM­ING out of Bea­cons­field to­wards the M40 junc­tion the other day, I was rather sur­prised to see a small yel­low sign on the left, about 100 yards from the Pye­bush round­about, which read: “HS2 Con­struc­tion Route.

Ex­pect de­lays 2018 – 2028”. Rather shock­ing for most lo­cal res­i­dents, I would imag­ine. The HS2 van­ity project has not had the fi­nal go-ahead and may, hope­fully, be can­celled by the new Prime Min­is­ter.

Mean­while, this sign is warn­ing us of some­thing that may not hap­pen and, to all ac­counts, is sev­eral miles from the near­est tun­nelling point at Den­ham, where there are other mo­tor­way con­nec­tions.

Does some­one know some­thing we don’t, and by whose au­thor­ity was the sign put up any­way?
