Edinburgh welcomes HS2 study

Council leader, Cllr Andrew Burns, responds to today’s announcement by the Scottish and Westminster Governments that they will carry out a study on the benefits of bringing HS2 north of Manchester and Leeds...

"We welcome today’s commitment to examine options for bringing high speed rail to Scotland", he said.

"It has already been demonstrated that the maximum economic and environmental benefits for the UK can only be realised if Scotland is part of the network.

"We are pressing for an early announcement on the next phase bringing this much needed rail infrastructure north of the Border and linking with the planned High Speed Link between Glasgow and Edinburgh."
