YES to High Speed RailJuly 9, 2011
You may have seen the posters around town urging you to show your support for High Speed Rail – the purpose-built, ultra-fast link from London to Birmingham and then Manchester.
“YES to High Speed Rail” have a website which answers lots of common questions and sets out the reasons why HS2 (as the line will be known) is so important to the regions it serves. In addition to offering faster journeys to Birmingham and London, it will free up much needed capacity on the conventional railway lines and deliver business benefits and employment opportunities to our region.
The campaign have an online letter to the government urging them to press ahead with the plans, and you can show your support by signing up at http://www.campaignforhsr.com/join-our-campaign
