Lexington Communications HS2 activity

with 2 comments

PR company Lexington Communications has launched a second HS2 website, called “Connected Cities – One voice for HS2”.

Lexington-run pro-HS2 website for Northern and East Midland cities, viewed April 2014

Lexington-run pro-HS2 website set up for the city councils of Manchester, Leeds, Derby, Nottingham, Liverpool, York, Sheffield, and Newcastle-upon-Tyne (2014)

It uses much the same design, and factoids, as the earlier “The Future of Travel” site.

Unlike The Future of Travel, at the time of writing Connected Cities does not seem to mention Lexington at all. The site copyright is simply “Connected Cities 2014”.

  1. The Lexington website says “HS2 will help improve connectivity across the country”

    But, look at the HS2 map. HS2 is about connectivity up and down the country, not across it. It is not about connecting up the east-west agglomerations of regional city centres, commuter catchments, IT-based SMEs and technical skills seen by the BBC2’s ‘Mind The Gap’ reports, with Evan Davies reporting, as essential for regions beyond the Gap if they are to have a hope of competing with London’s world-city economy to the south:

    Talking of which, spot which city (and which parts of that city) HS2 will serve best.
