Hs2 Rail Benefits To Economy 'unclear', Says National Audit Office

Recommended Posts

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-22543860

The benefits of the HS2 high speed rail project on the economy are unclear, the National Audit Office (NAO) has warned.

The NAO said in a report that it had "reservations" about how the London-to-Birmingham link would deliver growth, adding that the project had an estimated £3.3bn funding gap.

But Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said the NAO's conclusions were based on old data.

Labour said the report was a "worrying wake-up call" for the government.

No shock here.
