HS-2 Evidence To Be Heard

Published by the Mix96 News Team at 11:21am 11th February 2012.

A pro-high speed rail, cross party group of MPs will begin hearing evidence this week - about HS2.

The MPs who are heading up the inquiry say they're double-checking that HS2 - which the government backed last month - IS what's needed to create extra capacity on Britain's railways.

They want any new transport project to deliver extra space for passengers and freight - but also to future-proof the country's network so that it continues to work in the decades to come.

Last week, the Leader of Bucks County Council - along with opposition group 51m - wrote to the Transport Secretary Justine Greening threatening a legal challenge against the £32bn HS2.

The hearing will begin on Wednesday.
