The Government is still considering the full implications of the recent Heathrow judgement and what impacts, if any, it might have on other projects such as HS2. It is a complex and important judgment which the Government will need time to consider carefully.
HS2 is due to play a key part in the transition to a net-zero carbon UK economy by 2050. HS2 will offer some of the lowest carbon emissions per passenger km – seven times less than passenger cars and 17 times less than domestic air travel in 2030. By providing a cleaner, greener way to travel, HS2 will help cut the number of cars and lorries on our roads, cut demand for domestic flights, and help the country’s fight against climate change.
