Well said

The public doesn’t want it, Members of Parliament doesn’t want it, it really is time to scrap HS2 and spend the money on something else.  The only people who do seem to want HS2 are Chris Grayling and the people who will be paid vast sums of taxpayers’ money for building HS2.  We call on Chris Grayling to do one thing right and cancel HS2 as soon as possible.”

Seriously?

5.2.2 The Bill provides for temporary construction traffic routes which pass through the A500 Queensway/A519 Newcastle Road and A519 Newcastle Road/A5182 Trentham Road junctions in the Stone and Swynnerton area.

No Construction traffic in Madeley village

HS2 have categorically stated there will be NO construction traffic using the route through Madeley village. NO trucks, NO vans, NO cars. NOTHING. Based on other undertakings they have provided that proved to be incorrect, it remains to be seen whether or not they had their fingers crossed behind their backs when they said it!
