Croxley Rail Link to be cheaper alternative to HS2

Posted by Edward Aboud on Thursday, August 23, 2012, In : High Speed 2 
I am supporting an idea of the London Underground Metropolitan line to be extended to Watford Junction. Although the existing Watford station would be closed, there will be many benefits:
  • Quicker access to Birmingham from Chesham, Croxley and all train stations between Aylesbury Vale Parkway and North Harrow, by getting the Croxley Rail Link to Watford Junction and then using the existing London - Birmingham line from there
  • It will allow new proposed stations at Ascot Road and Watford Hospital,...

68% of us don't want HS2 to go across the Chilterns

Posted by Edward Aboud on Thursday, August 23, 2012, In : High Speed 2 
According to a current poll on the Buckinghamshire Examiner website (www.buckinghamshireexaminer.co.uk), 68% of us have answered 'No' in a poll which asks 'Do you support plans for a high speed rail link to whizz trains through the Chilterns on their way from London to the Midlands?' This has made us more confident about stopping HS2, although the poll only asks if people want HS2 to go across the Chilterns, and not if they support the whole idea.

HS2 to cost £1 billion before work even starts

Posted by Edward Aboud on Tuesday, August 21, 2012, In : High Speed 2 

New figures show High Speed 2 is set to cost the Government £1 billion before any contruction work begins.

The figures, revealed under the Freedom of Information Act, have been attacked by anti-HS2 protesters in Bucks.

Campaigners have long argued that the business case has not been made for the £34 billion high speed rail project and wanted to find out how much HS2 Ltd had already spent on the link through the Chilterns.

The Government has already spent more than £88 million including both r...

Happy New Year!

Posted by Ed on Sunday, January 1, 2012, In : High Speed 2 
2012 will be a big year for all of us at the Junior Bucks Stop HS2 Organization and for many other people against HS2, as 2012 will be the year that Justine Greening MP (the Secretary State for Transport) will make the big decision as whether or not HS2 will go ahead. It will also be a year since we were in the Bucks Examiner on Friday 27th January.

Ed goes on first high speed rail link to see the Gadget Show LIVE 2011

Posted by Ed on Tuesday, April 19, 2011, In : High Speed 2 
Ed, the manager of the Junior Bucks Stop HS2 Organization, went on the first high speed rail link up to The NEC in Birmingham to see the Gadget Show LIVE 2011 over the weekend. He said "The first high speed rail link between London and Birmingham only took 1hr 10 mins on the way and 1hr 30 mins on the way back. The time went very quickly and there is no good reason for a new high speed rail link. A lot of countryside had already had to be destroyed to build the first high speed rail link and ...
