HS2's Euston pause shows a lack of long-term thinking

Responding to the confirmation that HS2 is to pause work on the Euston Tunnel, Caroline said:

“This news only goes to show that the Conservative Government is incapable of learning from the failures of past infrastructure projects.

“Changing your mind half way through a project and pausing individual sections only leads to increased costs in the long-term alongside significant eyesores in local areas.

“This cancelation will have a huge impact on the Euston area, its communities and local businesses, potentially for decades.

“We need to see long-term thinking when it comes to our infrastructure, not just knee-jerk reactions.”
