HS2 line will never make up for losses
DEAR Editor, Sir Trevor Morgan’s article on the imagined and very unlikely benefits of HS2, smacked of desperation for a project that is rapidly been seen as a financial and ecological disaster in the making.
All the hype that has been showered on us, cannot counter the cold facts ie. that it is an EU-imposed project that will be the world’s most expensive per mile, it will never repay its capital cost and will never operate profitably.
In addition, it will ecologically destroy a wide south-north corridor, through an England that can ill afford the loss of green space or damage to communities.
