The consistently-critical Taxpayers’ Alliance, which opposes the HS2 high speed rail scheme, has launched a competition inviting suggestions for an alternative way of spending £56 billion – not necessarily on railways, Railnews reported.

The [Taxpayers] Alliance says: “The Great British Transport Competition is asking all interested parties from across the UK to submit ideas for transport infrastructure projects. Entries will be judged by an expert panel, including qualified surveyors, politicians and rail industry experts. The winning bids will be professionally costed and presented to ministers.”
