New Secretary of State for Transport – write to her opposing HS2

Yesterday, Justine Greening, MP, became Secretary of State for Transport, after Philip Hammond was moved to defence.

We have a unique opportunity to impress on the new Minister how unpopular HS2 is, by writing to her.

Now we need to let her that we oppose HS2, just like she opposed the third runway at Heathrow.

She will know that Stop HS2 delivered a petition with 108,000 signatures to Downing Street on Tuesday, that another anti HS2 petition was delivered to Downing Street on Thursday and that there was a good demonstration opposite the Houses of Parliament before a lively debate with MPs from all around the country opposed to HS2.

She will also know that the majority of HS2 consultation responses opposed the project, and that she has a chance to rethink the Government’s high speed rail policy completely.

So if you oppose HS2, please, please write to her as soon as possible, and help stop this £33 billion folly.

Dear Ms Greening,

It’s also worth copying your own MP.

PS Ms Greening, if you are reading this, Stop HS2 was formed specifically to oppose the proposals announced last March: there may be ways of doing high speed rail that works for this country.

In particular, the HS2 link to Heathrow is part of the second phase of HS2, which won’t be complete until 2033 (or later), and meanwhile residents near Heathrow are in a “living in a no man’s land of blight, because we do not yet know that route” (according to John McDonnell, MP for Hayes and Harlington).
