HS2 will need a power supply. We have learned from HS2 that they are intending to lay a high voltage power line from Silverdale through to Bar Hill in Madeley. The intended route is along the A525 from Keele, through Madeley Village to Bar Hill. HS2 estimate the road works will take between 6 - 10 months.
Bill Cash to raise the question of the viability of HS2 Phase 2A in Parliament at 9.30am Wednesday 12th September. Doubts continue to grow about the potential & possibly unknown cost of the project.
It ain't over yet! The Woodland Trust are campaigning to try to overturn the Select Committee decision. We can support their campaign here
