PLEASE JUST CANCEL HS2
JULIA SANDS Great Missenden
I ECHO the slogan put up on the Great Missenden A413 bypass ‘Bury It’.
In fact, I’d go further and say ‘Cancel It’.
Having written frequently in protest of this unnecessary HS2 white elephant, I am certain not enough research has been done on the soil infrastructure and the suffering this slug engine will cause.
Having lived in Chalfont St Giles for many years, a home I owned in Gorelands Lane had an enormous swallow hole that had to be filled in, and I remember the near disaster that occurred when the Tesco store was being built in Gerrards Cross, above the station, and a tunnell collapsed narrowly missing a train.
And again recently there were sink holes – a car disappeared in Naphill and, previously, in High Wycombe.
I was recently speaking to a friend who was in tears because her cottage is being compulsorily purchased near Ballinger.
This stunning area, with owls hooting and peaceful quiet with heart-lifting, rolling hills, is all to be devastated by foolish mens’ whims – or is it just for financial gain?
I cry out for sense to prevail and HS2 to be cancelled.
The country cannot afford it – horrid HS2.
