From the Archives – views on the HS1 link, 18 months ago

In March 2014, Sunday Politics covered the news that the HS1 rail link might be dropped from the HS2 proposals. Then Transport Minister, Baroness Kramer suggested it could be replaced by a travelator.

Without the link, passengers will not be able to travel directly from the Midlands & North to mainland Europe as promised.

(18 months on, it looks like the link will be formally dropped from the plans.)
