Julian backs HS2 news
February 5, 2013
Earlier this week, the Secretary of State for Transport announced that York will be connected to HS2.
Commenting on the announcement Julian said “I am delighted we finally have confirmation that York has been linked into the new HS2 line. This is something that politicians from all parties in York alongside local business leaders have been pushing for, and I am pleased our voices have been listened too.
“The economic benefits of improved connectivity and faster journey times to London will be a great boast for our city and we must now seize the opportunity that High Speed Rail can bring to regeneration projects such as the York central site.
“Alongside the northern hub expansion and the electrification of the transpennine express rail service, we are now seeing real commitment and investment in the North, improving connectivity across our region in a concerted effort to close the North-South divide.”
