All this and weekend trips to Glasgow too

with one comment

Rab C NesbittThe legacy of HS2 “won’t just be revitalised historic landmarks, new business headquarters and a surge in weekend trips from Birmingham to Glasgow”. The young apprentices at the National College for High Speed Rail in Birmingham will train 1,200 students every single year, using cutting-edge technology and world-class teaching to get the qualifications and experience they need to build our future railway, according to a Birmingham Mail article written by West Midlands mayor Andy Street and HS2 Minister Nusrat Ghani.

Birmingham Live, 'The young apprentices at the National College for High Speed Rail in Birmingham will train 1,200 students every single year, using cutting-edge technology and world-class teaching to get the qualifications and experience they need', 05 Mar 2018

But how could young apprentices ‘train 1,200 students’?

And what is the “cutting-edge” technology involved? Surely the majority of HS2 civil engineering work would be tasks such as operating HGVs, concrete mixers, and JCBs?

HS2 would cut the Birmingham - Glasgow journey time from 3h57 to 3h22, and cause a surge of weekend visits, according to Andy Street and Nusrat Ghani

  1. Citizens of Birmingham will no doubt be turning up in their hoards totally gobsmacked by the prospect that if they make the trek to Curzon Street they will save about 30minutes on a trip to Glasgow. HS2 trains will be slower than current trains north of Wigan because they can’t tilt and they will need expensive power upgrades to climb the steep gradients.
