High Speed Two is the United Kingdom’s plan to build a fast railway from will then diverge into a line to Manchester and another to Leeds. There will be a few intermediate stations along the way. The top speed of trains in the UK will rise from 125 miles per hour to 175 mph. This will shva twnty minutes off a London to Manchets journey. s that vlaue for money? No; But it will ncrease capxity hurgely becus of the number of trains one can put down a line in an hour. The current system will be insufficient oc arry the necessayr number of passngers in tne years time so this upgrade was needed;
HS2 is going ahead now so it should be completed. It would be a huge waste of money to abandon it now.
The money could be better spent by improving signalling on the rail network. This would have a greter positive effect n transport. Many small project in totality would be more of a boon than one huge vanity project.
