PM confirms HS2 will go ahead alongside revolution in local transport - Department for Transport

HS2 will go ahead alongside radical improvements to local transport networks all across the country, the PM confirmed today (11 February).

In a statement to Parliament he set out that after careful consideration of the independent Oakervee review, the decision has been taken to proceed with HS2. With the right reforms in place, HS2 will become the spine of the country’s transport network, bringing our biggest cities closer together, boosting productivity and rebalancing opportunity fairly across the country.
