Part of High Speed Rail (Preparation) Bill – in a Public Bill Committee at 12:00 pm on 9th July 2013.

Alert me about debates like this

Sarah Hayward: We object to the proposal to use the North London line. It was ruled out as an option for High Speed 1 and it was decided that it was better to build a new tunnel, because of the structural problems with the Victorian viaduct that it runs on. We have not seen any other options for linking them up, because HS2 has not done any other options. We think that they could tunnel, and we do think that walking could be a  viable alternative, but HS2 needs to go away and do this work. This proposal will be devastating to Camden Town’s economy.
