HS2 'will be good for the area'
1:20pm Sunday 15th September 2013 in News
A REPORT by KPMG shows that Greater Manchester stands to benefit substantially from the High Speed 2 train line, which will run from London to Birmingham, Manchester and Leeds, with the report arguing that the whole of Great Britain stands to benefit from the line.
The report claims that freeing up capacity will result in ‘widespread improvements to services on the classic network’, meaning that the line will benefit UK businesses and passengers throughout.
Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester City Council, said: "By the 2020s, our already creaking rail and road networks will be in urgent need of extra capacity, and doing nothing is not an option. If you accept the compelling need for a new network, it makes no sense for it to be anything other than high speed.”
