The Liverpool Echo has the article on its website – see link below:-
HS2 was always going to lead to some cities feeling left out of the high-speed rail network and Liverpool fell into that category when routing it from Manchester to Leeds became the sadly unsurprising favoured direction. Since then much lobbying has been taking place to try to get Liverpool connected to HS2 and this latest plan by TfN looks to be a credible offer to Government.
Will it get the go-ahead? Goodness knows in the strange political times in which we presently live, must be the answer! Having said that we are told that the Conservatives are reaching out to Brexit leaning Labour enabler MP’s to offer them things to get them on board the Tory train off a cliff edge. Will a promise of funding for this high-speed rail link buy any of them off?
