TSSA welcomes High Court judgement on HS2

6 August 2014

TSSA has welcomed the news that the High Court had rejected a Judicial Review into HS2

TSSA  leader, Manuel Cortes said:  "Hopefully this will once and for all end the obsession by a small elite who are putting their own narrow interests before those of the nation by seeking to stop this vital piece of investment in our national infrastructure. HS2 is urgently needed to increase capacity in our rail network. In doing so it will help get cars and lorries off our roads and aid the reinvigoration of the economies of our northern cities.
"It also time for politicians to stop dithering by giving the go ahead for high speed rail to go all the way to Scotland. We are in Europe's slow lane. France, Germany and Spain all have extensive high speed networks"
