Yesterday Cat Smith MP attended a meeting with stakeholders from across the Lancaster district to agree a case for ensuring Lancaster’s connection to the HS2 network. Here’s what she had to say about the meeting:
“I was really pleased that so many local stakeholders joined me this week to agree our case for Lancaster’s connection to the HS2 network.
We will be working together to spell out the compelling case for HS2 to stop at Lancaster.
High Speed 2 is a high-speed railway which, when completed, will directly connect London, Birmingham, the East Midlands, Leeds and Manchester. Scheduled to open in phases between 2026 and 2033, high-speed trains will travel up to 400 km/h on 330 miles of track.
Thanks to Lancaster University for hosting the meeting.”
