Given the spiralling cost of combating the ongoing pandemic, surely now is the time to reconsider the vastly overpriced HS2 Project?
I repeat my assertion that the need could be met by replacing scheduled rail services with a constant loop of electric vehicles, assembled in automobile factories being declared surplus to requirements.
They would take up the slack in the car market, for example, and not require the infrastructure associated with rail travel. Also, the noise blight for those living en route would be eliminated.
Why oh why do I encounter a wall of silence from the government on this subject?Brunel would be turning in his grave.
