The value of HS3

with one comment

The shortcomings and non sequiturs of the HS2 and HS3 rail schemes have received extensive coverage on the Beleben blog. And a few weeks ago, this blog pointed out that Transport for the North seemed be going up a cul-de-sac of its own making. What is the value of HS3?

The logic supporting grand projects such as HS3 is built upon faulty reasoning, according to analysis published on June 1 by the Centre for Cities (wrote Peter Spence).

According to The Guardian’s coverage of the Centre for Cities report, improving transport links within northern cities, rather than between them, would have a bigger impact on improving productivity. (The 2014 “Fast Track to Growth” report from the Centre for Cities seemed to back HS3.)
