The TaxPayers’ Alliance have announced a new competition to find better ways to spend the money planned for HS2.
Scrapping HS2 could free up around £50 billion to improve transport links up and down the country. Given the spiralling costs (with the latest evidence suggesting that cost could almost double), taxpayers are demanding more for their money.
The Great British Transport Competition is asking people and organisations from across the UK to submit ideas for transport infrastructure projects. Entries will be judged by an expert panel, including qualified surveyors, politicians and transport industry experts. The winning bids will be professionally costed and presented to ministers.
For more information and details of how to enter see taxpayersalliance.com/gbtc.
The competition is open from Monday 3rd September until 5pm BST on Friday 26th October and the winner will be announced in January 2019.
The competition is open to everyone, entries will ideally be between 1000 to 2000 words long.
