H S 2: Train of the future? Or off the rails?

With Lorna Pimlott, Sponsorship & Policy Director HS2 Phase 2
Phase 2A is the section from the West Midlands to Crewe, Manchester and Wigan. Further south, HS2 construction is under way, as you can see at Euston; the Amersham tunnel started just as that by-election took place. Hmmm…

The Act for Phase 2A received Royal Assent in February this year; routes were confirmed as long ago as July 2017. Yet there are fears that the whole of this section might be cancelled. Let’s find out what’s happening.

Future Meetings


Friday 3 Dec: Derbyshire Whisky at the Cat and Fiddle.
We are invited to breakfast at the famous Cat & Fiddle Inn (starting half an hour later, coffee from 8am, speaker 8.30am). Karl Bond, of the global award-winning Forest Distillery in Macclesfield, has taken over this iconic pub and is distilling whisky from its peaty waters. A wonderful opportunity to hear about a local success story, see the operation, and buy your special Christmas presents.
