Grant Shapps unveils high-speed rail plans – some HS2 extensions scrapped

The Government’s HS2 plans are facing backlash from Red Wall Tory MPs as Boris Johnson has promised faster journeys.

In an announcement to the Commons the Transport Secretary Grant Shapps unveiled a £96bn pledge of new investment in rail plans. But they include the scrapping of HS2 between the East Midlands and Leeds.

Writing in the Yorkshire Post, the Prime Minister promised “faster journeys, to more places, more quickly” for Yorkshire.

However, the Integrated Rail Plan (IRP), published while Mr Shapps was speaking to MPs shows major revisions to previously announced goals.
