A NEW report has called into question the viability of the entire HS2 rail scheme on the grounds of cost, poor benefits and technological miscalculations.
The scheme is branded a waste of money which will cost billions more than expected and go way over its deadlines.
Rich Man’s Toy: The Case for Scrapping HS2 has been produced by The Taxpayers’ Alliance.
“We need to put up a united front to fight HS2”
CAMPAIGNERS whose homes could be bulldozed to make way for HS2 hope to club together and put up a “united front” against the proposals.
Residents in Bramley held a meeting last week and agreed to contact groups from across the area in the hope of creating a “louder voice”.
A petition set up by people in the village has already attracted more than 2,000 signatures but Hellaby ward councillor Jenny Andrews said they were now hoping to speak to people from other parts, such as Barnburgh, Mexborough and Aston, who would also be affected.
