High Speed 2
With Boris Johnson in No 10 we await clarification of the new Prime Minister’s position. Will he back High Speed 2? In full? In part? At all? HS2 Ltd Chair Allan Cook is undertaking an internal review of the project. In addition to this, rail veteran Doug Oakervee, a former HS2 chair and one time Crossrail executive chairman who was instrumental in development of the parliamentary bill that legislated for the new cross-London railway, has been tasked by Mr Johnson to undertake a six-week review of the project with a focus on identifying any areas of waste or opportunities to re-profile the scheme to save money.
