Government figures for the HS2 high speed rail project just don’t add up, according to York University mathematical economics and operational research Professor Jacco Thijssen.

[Has the economic case for HS2 come off the rails?, York University, 16 February 2016]

An economist at York has developed a mathematical model to help politicians and policymakers decide whether to go ahead with expensive and time-consuming construction projects.

The model has applications for major infrastructure projects such as the controversial HS2 high speed rail link – and it concludes that the case for the multimillion pound north-south transport link just doesn’t add up.
[…]
“What we are doing at York in terms of mathematical modelling is far more advanced than anything that is currently available to the government or most of the private sector,” [Prof Thijssen] explains.
