  1. AS FAR AS I CAN SEE ALL THE PEOPLE ALONG THE LINE WANT TUNNELS AND LOW CUTTING WITH BANKS OF EARTH ON TOP TO CUT DOWN THE SIGHT AND NOISE OF THE TWENTY OR SO TRIANS AN HOUR SO I CAN NOT ACCEPT THEY CAN NOT BUILD MOST OF THE LINE IN TUNNELS AFTER ALL THE GOVENMENT WANTS TO SHOW OUR EC PARTNERS WHAT WE CAN DO .WHEN THEY ARE CUTING OUT BUILDING ANY MORE OF THERE FAST TRAINS

  2. Neither can those of us that are against HS2, and have been trying to stop all the money being wasted on it.Those who are for it will it seems
    make a lot of tax payers money giving them nothing but a white elephant in return.

  3. If the Oxford to Cambridge rail route is developed to move intercity and freighttrains between the main radial routes CL, WCML, MML and ECML and the ECML upgraded with some new structures there is not the requirement for HS2.

    Divert some trains between these longer radial routes and particularly the long freight trains from the WCML and MML lines will increase peak and near peak train access for commuting.

    The TOC liberalisation is not efficient at moving the maximum people per train on some routes.

    The case exists for cancelling the HS2 route and enhancing the ECML and removing some constraints with new structures and adding some parallel tracks along section and developing the East/West proposed Oxford Cambridge route with 4 tracks between Bletchley and Hitchin to carry the radial route migrating trains.

    A significant saving on the cost of HS2 and reduction in the loss of land for a ultra fast diversion city to city fragile one track each way 300 to 400kph unreliable service through new locations providing little demand.

    With the current fare to and from London to Leeds at £160 and the flight return between London and Edinburgh at £80 return there is little premium from 30 minute saving.

    Better the public funding is directed to power stations and some improvements to the outdated ECML and some other commuter sections.

    Cannot determine how HS2 analysis failed to identify more affordable options for the UK to adopt.
