9 October: news in brief

Adam Smith Institute says ‘scrap HS2’

RIGHT WING think tank the Adam Smith Institute says the government should look again at HS2, after confirmation that the costs of the project are rising. The Institute says the money should be invested in alternative rail projects, including upgrades of the West Coast, East Coast and Midland Main Lines, as well as the rebuilding of the Great Central Railway as far as Rugby. The ASI is still in favour of a new station at Old Oak Common, to provide more capacity in London for trains from the north of England.
