die belebende Bedenkung

Eat, sleep, spin, reset

On 13 October, just weeks after the official ‘start of construction‘ of its High Speed Two railway, the government has announced that new “cost pressures” are emerging. (Was für eine Überraschung.), 'HS2 6 monthly report to parliament', 13 Oct 2020

But apparently no mention in this six-monthly report of other ‘cost pressures’, like the now-proposed 5.7 km tunnel in Bromford.

HS2 phase one, proposed Bromford tunnel extension

  1. Thanks for pointing out the Bromford Tunnel. HS2 seem to have kept that quiet.

    McNaughton told me that he wanted to demolish the M6 viaduct & rebuild it above HS2.

    I am puzzled that HS2 think it necessary to have porous portals on the Birmingham spur when max speed is only 230kph & the Delta curves are 200 or less.
