Report claims Parliament was misled over costs of HS2

View original Report claims Parliament was misled over costs of HS2

Sky News reported that the former deputy chairman of the Government’s independent review into HS2, Lord Tony Berkeley, has claimed that the cost of the project is “out of control” and could spiral to £107bn. In a report released independently of the review panel, Lord Berkeley stated that,  “I believe that parliament was misled on the question of HS2 costs and that it is highly unlikely that, if it had been given the real cost figures by the Department of Transport, it would have passed the legislation to allow this project to proceed.”

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
