Steven Hayter: We at the Institution of Civil Engineers were consulted; we made a submission for the phase 1 consultation in which we were generally supportive of the High Speed 2 routing. The one area we focused on as perhaps needing more work was the one Mr Dobson just described. We think that the North London line is very constrained in that area and agree that there are risks associated with bringing a line to the surface along the North London line in that particular location. Therefore we think that High Speed 2 needs to look at the engineering and the possibilities for that part of the route.
