Off to a good start ? HS2!

HS2 has got off to a good start ? Barely one year after recieving the
the go ahead from the government to start the 1st phase from
London to Birmingham and they are allready over budget to the tune
of 800 million ?? How can this be so, they have hardly scratched
the ground yet?? If this continues then this project is likely to cost
more than covid?? Is it time to call time on what seems likely to be
a white elephant??

Course it is, donkeyman, especially with the cost of the current crisis continuing for God knows how long.
It should never have been allowed to get this far IMO.

Re: Off to a good start ? HS2!

Why is it that this ill conceived grandiose farce that is the HS2 project is virtually only backed by politicians and the firms that are going to milk it for billions? Is there perhaps a clue in that sentence somewhere?

I despair sometimes I really do...., should never have left the drawing board...

It will only make a difference to the few, while the many's taxes have to pay for it.

I can only guess that the price of backhanders has risen.

Re: Off to a good start ? HS2!

HS2 has got to go ahead now. So much work has been done the London end. If Brum is not feasible, do a left after Old Oak Common, take it to LHR. Or relocate LHR to Milton Keynes ... or something. 😐

Enough damage has been done around here already, may as well see it through.
