  1. South East England

  6. Sheffield Transportation and Infrastructure
    Although heavily discussed in the ‘Your Sheffield Transport Solutions’ thread, as this will be the biggest transport infrastructure for Sheffield in our lifetime, I thought HS2 deserved its own thread. With the announcement of the routes imminent, interesting article in this weeks Telegraph...

    I don't understand why the UK estabilishment doesn't catch the opportunity of a MAGLEV infrastructure from London to Glascow. Traditional HSR is the past, isn't it? In addition, UK are an island having only one connection with the continent in the south part (EUROTUNNEL), so where's the...

    here is a proposal I've been working on for a Northern HSR linking the main Northern cities which would effectively merge them and make them very commutable, which would encourage growth. and with HS2 to London it would make the new 'Nothern Conurbation' very attractive to businesses. much like...
  12. East Midlands
    The HSR report just released suggests a possible East Midlands station. Assuming this does happen as planned, what do you think the best location for a station in the region would be?

  17. Greater Manchester Transport Projects
    Right, given it appears that TIF is about to come to a crashing end, along with any reasonable prospect of delivering a good local public transport for Manchester and region, I think I may shift my focus onto badgering DfT for HSR2 to be built up from London, to Heathrow and then to Brum and...
