CBI Comments On Higgins HS2 Phase Report

The CBI commented on a report for HS2 Phase 2 by Sir David Higgins.

Katja Hall, CBI Deputy Director-General, said:

“This report sets out a clear blueprint for the next phase of HS2. Businesses throughout the north will welcome Sir David’s commitment to boosting growth, jobs and investment across the region.

“We agree that northern cities should speak with one voice and it’s important that local transport providers and businesses are also involved if we are to prioritise the most cost-effective and beneficial upgrades for the north as a whole.

“Sir David is right to focus on improving east-west links and the priority must be on boosting connections not speed. Any proposals must be well thought-out and the business case water-tight.”
