HS2 live you longtime

with one comment

At the ‘Next Generation Rail’ conference in December 2014, Cheshire East council leader Michael Jones explained how the HS2 railway would help people live long, and prosper.

[NGR conference, Crewe, 4 Dec 2014]

Q: What are the benefits of a fully integrated transport system on societal concerns such as public health?

[Michael Jones]: Believe it or not, there will be a very strong link between HS2 and public health. We’re in the situation where we have women (in Cheshire East) with a life expectancy of 57. Less than 30 miles away, it’s 72. That’s one of the highest discrepancies in the country. Granted, the current life expectancy has risen from 52 in the last three years, but if we continue to focus on low employment, getting people educated and giving them wealth – all things that come with the HS2, then we can expect to see big change.
