HS2AA At the Conservative Party Conference 2013 Day 2

photo (9) On a day when the Secretary of State for Transport gave another speech trotting out the same tired lines in favour of HS2, our stand in the Freedom Zone has been busy all day. We also had a couple of MPs pop round to see us-Andrew Brigden and Jeremy Wright. Feedback from conference attendees is overwhelmingly positive-as one off route Constituency Party Chairman said-“I can’t believe there are still Conservatives who think this is a good idea”.

We also hit the airwaves to give instant reaction to the speech given by Patrick McLoughlin.

We pointed out his claims that Hs2 would help ease congestion on our roads appear not to be based on any facts-Hs2 Ltd’s own forecasts indicate that just 6% of its passengers will be transferring from the roads.
