Yesterday, the Government announced an independent and rigorous review into the High Speed 2 project so that we can obtain clear advice on the future of the project.
- The Prime Minister has been clear that transport infrastructure has the potential to drive economic growth, redistribute opportunity and support towns and cities across the UK, but that investments must be subject to continuous assessment of their costs and benefits.
- Douglas Oakervee and his expert panel will consider all the evidence available and provide us with clear advice on the future of the project.
· The final report will be sent by the autumn and inform our decisions on next steps for the project.
Why this matters: This review will provide evidence which could lead to the 'green light' being given to HS2 which will directly impact on the residents of Toton and the wider Broxtowe Constituency.
