OXFORDPROSPECT – New cross-London plan for HS1 and HS2

See on Scoop.itOxford Today

“HS1 – HS2 connection: a way forward shows how a tunnelled connection across the London Borough of Camden can be combined with an underused surface railway westwards from Old Oak Common to bring connectivity and coherence to the plans for the London end of HS2.”

Nicholas Newman‘s insight:

Kent County Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport, David Brazier, said: "This is an excellent scheme which will receive strong support in Kent. Our Council is committed to seeing the extension of High Speed rail opportunities from Kent, and this new link would pave the way for future domestic rail service improvements to destinations beyond London. It would also provide a long-term solution for the option of future international services from cities north of London to European destinations."

Geoff Inskip, Chief Executive, Centro said: “The importance of a direct link from the North and Midlands cannot be overstated. This proposal is very welcome and we need to see it implemented at the earliest opportunity"
