HS2’s predicted ‘carbon-neutral’ performance – fundamentally at odds with the 80% reduction target of the 2008 Climate Change Act – is a direct result of HS2’s failure to deliver “hugely enhanced capacity and connectivity.”

Our ‘Alan Brooke’ Report needs updating to reflect the latest developments of HSUK. But its basic principle – that optimised connectivity gives optimised CO2 reductions – remains sound. For more info please follow these links.
