National Trust reaction to Sir David Higgins ‘HS2 Plus’ report

Ingrid Samuel, Historic Environment Director for the National Trust, said: “No-one wants unnecessary costs associated with HS2 so we welcome measures which bear down on avoidable spending. But HS2 is a once in a lifetime project so it’s important that this doesn’t mean compromising on quality. It’s vital that local concerns continue to be heard, that the impacts of the railway are properly addressed and that the best solutions are found for the people and places affected. HS2 mustn’t end up cutting corners at the expense of the environment.”
