The strategic objectives of HS2

with 2 comments

The government’s October 2013 Strategic Case for HS2 included an ‘About this document’ paragraph:

All Government projects must be supported by a robust business case – and HS2 is no exception. The Strategic Case for HS2 explains the context for the project and the reasons why the Government needs to act. It describes the strategic objectives; the alternative options that have been considered and why HS2 emerges as the preferred way forward. It also sets out the economic benefits that HS2 will bring and confirms that the project represents good value for money; that it is affordable and will be delivered to budget and will be managed and procured effectively.

However, so far as can be established, the strategic objectives of HS2 aren’t listed anywhere in the Strategic Case.
