HS2 | £32 billion ($50bn) high speed rail line

UK forum thread: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=423318

Two pieces of news regarding the London section of the HS2 line:

- A revised proposal for Euston Station has been released in the past week. The station will be redeveloped instead of demolished: http://www.hs2.org.uk/press/euston-s...part-plans-hs2



- A 9km stretch of the HS2 line in west London will be tunneled instead of above ground. This section is marked in red: http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...london-tunnel/

Unlikely, given that it's not even indicated in the 'revised proposal' drawing.

Rates of murder and violent crime have fallen more rapidly in the UK in the past decade than anywhere else in Western Europe, researchers say.

The UK Peace Index, from the Institute for Economics and Peace, found UK homicides per 100,000 people had fallen from 1.99 in 2003, to one in 2012.

The UK was more peaceful overall, it said, with the reasons for it varied.

Then that is what I will call it also. I can see Syndic's point of view also. Although this seems to be at a different scale.

Goodness this has taken its time, stepping into the Trocadero now is like stepping into a bizarre cyberpunk world akin to the decaying streets in Blade Runner.

How's that relevant to a London construction thread?

Please don't post such stuff here. We've got skybars and urban talk forums for such purposes.

Who cares.

Let them be insecure and pathetic.

Everyone should just continue to keep updating this London thread. I know that is tough because there's just so much going on compared to our *cough* rivals.

I care because a certain system Admin is abusing his power on petty nationalistic grounds.

They're supposed to be above that sort of thing...


EDIT:

And another 5,000 gets added to it.

15,000 extra views!!!!

Thread manipulation is taken to a new low.

Wimbledon's facelift is great!

ps: & please, stop bashing us over & over again. You don't like us, fair enough that's your problem, but try to get over that. I also am surprised by the huge frog leap that occured...I have no idea who does that & why but personally, there's nothing I can do about it. That being said, I understand your vexation as this situation is unfair .
