Chief Executive of business representatives Camden Town Unlimited, Simon Pitkeathley said it was fantastic news and a victory for common sense.
Commenting on today’s report on HS2 by HS2 chairman Sir David Higgins, Chief Executive of Camden Town Unlimited, Simon Pitkeathley said:
Sir David is right to say that the current HS1-HS2 link is sub-optimal and needs to be reconsidered.
The link as it stands tears through the heart of Camden Town, potentially destroying our world-famous markets and causing over a decade of disruption to the area. Tunnelling the link instead of ripping through Camden Town above ground will mean that HS2 passengers get a better service, and Londoners don’t lose one of the most vibrant and creative areas of our city.
– Simon Pitkeathley, Camden Town Unlimited
We need urgent clarification from HS2 Ltd on the plans for the Link so that Camden Town is not left with years of blight due to uncertainty.
