D2N2 Statement on Government HS2 Review

D2N2 Chief Executive Officer Sajeeda Rose has responded to confirmation that a government review of HS2 will decide the project’s future by the end of 2019:

“D2N2 notes today’s government announcement of a review into HS2, a scheme which represents the biggest revolution in public transportation since the Victorian era.

“HS2 is already having a large and positive impact on our economy supporting over 7000 jobs and 2000 businesses nationally, 300 of those from across the midlands.

“In a national environment of greater and greater traffic demands on ageing infrastructure, HS2 is the most efficient and fastest method of public transportation across the country.

“D2N2 remains confident that HS2 will stimulate significant growth within Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire in the form of around 74,000 new jobs, £4 billion added to the economy, and increased prosperity for our communities. I trust that the review will come to the same conclusion.

“We stand ready with our partners to continue to press the case for HS2 to the government in the strongest possible terms.”
