Business and council leaders today welcomed final approval from Government of the HS2 route which confirms Wigan as the North West’s gateway to high speed rail. The decision to approve the phase 2 HS2 route was announced by Transport Secretary Chris Grayling today (Monday) and was hailed by business leaders as a major inward investment opportunity for the borough. Wigan will be the gateway to high speed rail with the west coast mainline joining the high speed network just to the south of Wigan and connecting to Crewe, Birmingham then London Euston. Once completed Wigan will connect to Birmingham in just 35 minutes, London in one hour 23 minutes, and will mean more than 8,000 extra seats for commuters per day.

Does it not come across as rather child-like to say  -  "Wigan confirmed as the North West’s gateway to high speed rail"?

The final cost will be nearer to £80 billion. The money would be better spent increasing existing railway capacity and strategic road routes that would be home to a new generation of garden cities.

The Spanish loco builders Talgo are looking where to site a new 450,000 sq.ft. train building facility. After a world wide review six sites have been shortlisted. All six are in the UK with St.Helens on the list.

Campaign groups say they believe the Government is about to scrap plans for HS2. The Treasury Secretary Liz Truss has said it will be included in the Autumn spending review. Northern leaders say the project essential. @henrimurison is from Northern Powerhouse Partnership
