Commenting on today’s report on HS2 by HS2 chairman Sir David Higgins, Chief Executive of Camden Town Unlimited, Simon Pitkeathley said:
Demand on Britain's rail service is "growing at 5%" every year, the chief executive of HS2 told Daybreak.
Sir David Higgins said a completed HS2 line would cure a multitude of economic woes, including creating jobs, lure more businesses to the north and help create more space for passengers.
"No new railway lines north of London in 100 years - why should we put up with that? It's not fair on jobs that are created in the region."
