High Speed UK (HSUK) is an alternative high speed rail network developed by professional railway engineers to address the shortcomings of HS2.
On a like-for-like basis HSUK trumps HS2 in every aspect.

The aim of the HS2 project is to deliver “hugely enhanced capacity and connectivity” between the UK’s major conurbations.

These gains in rail network capacity and connectivity are essential to rebalance the UK economy and bring about step-change reductions in transport CO2 emissions.

The Government and HS2 Ltd have been repeatedly warned of HS2’s multiple failings, and of HSUK’s vastly superior performance.  But they have ignored everything they’ve been told.  In the process they will waste at least £20 billion of public money.

The Government’s and HS2 Ltd’s actions in pressing ahead with HS2 in its current form are bordering on the criminal.
