The good news about the HS2 review is that ideas such as this are being tabled. What a sham...sorry, shame....that we have not had a national intercity transport strategy. A figure of 8 of high speed rail: London to Bristol/Cardiff. Bristol and Cardiff to Brum. Brum to Glasgow with stop off at the villages along the way. Glasgow to Edinburgh or Newcastle. Newcastle to Brum stopping of the Yorkshire somewhere. Brum to London. Sorted. Oh and Essex to Alsace.I don't think I'll be holding my breath for this one.
