Nicola Shaw: We are working closely with them. As I explained, they have been coming to look at things that have been done on High Speed 1 through a long period up to now, and will continue to do so. The good news is that in the current design we do not have to make any changes. Already the connection exists on to the North London line. The focus for them is, what do we do once the trains have left High Speed 1, on to High Speed 2? That does not mean that we ignore them; it means we work with them as closely as we can. But from their engineering point of view, there is not any change they need to make in High Speed 1.
