HS2 Ltd: "we will conduct environmental assessments"

"Subsequently, if the Government decides to proceed with HS2 through this area, we will conduct extensive environmental assessments of the effect of the line during building and operation - and how these could be reduced or avoided - as is happening now on Phase 1 of the route between the West Midlands and London.

And if this route is chosen HS2 Ltd will undertake design work for landscaping and earthworks as the project proceeds."
