Tunnels can be expensive

Tunnels can be expensive

With HS2, life in the East Midlands ‘will never be the same again’, according to Pete Waterman (speaking to the BBC before the Loughborough rail summit organised by East Midlands councils on 10 October 2014).

[Pete Waterman:] Is it acceptable in 2014 that it takes nearly an hour to get from Leicester to Birmingham? This is ridiculous. It’s nonsense.

Following Mr Waterman’s earlier criticisms of East Midlands councils, Leicestershire leader Nicholas Rushton called him “a so-called occasional songwriter, radio and club DJ” and said “all we get from HS2 is a huge trench through north west Leicestershire”.
