High Speed 2

High Speed 2 (HS2) is the proposed high speed rail link connecting London with Birmingham, and subsequently other major cities in the North of England. HS2 aims to cut travel times, increase capacity and spread economic benefits throughout the UK.

Whilst I acknowledge these aims, I am sceptical that this project will achieve these goals and am very aware of the implications the current “proposed” route will have on the environment, particularly the Chilterns, and the quality of life of all of us in Chesham and Amersham.

I oppose HS2 and I am making constant representations to the Government expressing both my own and my constituents’ concerns.
