HS2 Mismanagement and mistakes


Speaking in the House of Commons this afternoon during an urgent Question about the HS2 route and stations, Rt Hon Cheryl Gillan MP spoke of the “catalogue of mismanagement and mistakes” which has characterized the project – and what confidence there can be that the introduction of the second phase will be any different.

The Chesham & Amersham MP said that only days after the Parliamentary and Health Ombudsman criticized HS2 Ltd, after the House of Commons Standing Orders committee called the errors “an absolute shambles” and the Chesham Society's freedom of information request showed “massive inaccuracies” about traffic numbers, there were concerns about a “catalogue of mismanagement and mistakes” arising from the project.
