Andrea Leadsom – 2014 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Andrea Leadsom on 2014-03-27.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will update the business case for High Speed 2 to reflect the fact that there will be no link with High Speed 1.

Mr Robert Goodwill

We will continue to revise and update the economic case for HS2 as new project milestones are reached, such as decisions on the preferred route for Phase 2, to ensure it is based on the best available evidence and latest understanding of the project, including taking account of the decision to remove the existing proposals for the HS1-HS2 link from the scheme.
