Network Rail has proposed a £34bn high-speed line linking Edinburgh to London via Birmingham in 2030 in just two hours and nine minutes. Substantially faster than the four hours and nineteen minutes which is the fastest journey available tomorrow.
Fred Mackintosh continued, “As an opponent of the third runway at Heathrow and continued expansion of domestic airtravel this proposal can’t be delivered soon enough for me. It is time for the Scottish and UK Government to make clear and unequivocal commitments to the whole project."
