On 9th February, the All Party Parliamentary Group for High Speed Rail launched an inquiry to “establish the future capacity requirements of Britain’s railway infrastructure and to consider the most appropriate means of addressing these requirements in order to deliver an efficient railway infrastructure that can best meet the needs of the UK in the 21st century.”
The deadline for written submissions is Tuesday 13th March, 2012. Submission guidelines can be downloaded from the main inquiry page.
(Note: at the time of downloading the submission guidelines, the oral evidence session dates listed in the guidelines were in February, but the website gives updated dates of 14th March, 21st March, 18th April, 2012.
Also the inquiry is not specifically about HS2 or high speed rail.)
