Our work against HS2 in light of Covid-19Published on April 7, 2020
The Chiltern Society is still campaigning against HS2 and its effects on the Chilterns.
We have written to the Government to express our views that HS2 should not proceed any further during the Covid-19 situation, given the uncertain impacts on our national finances and future travelling habits.
We have also reiterated ongoing safety concerns regarding the Chiltern Tunnel and the huge demand on our water supplies that would be required should the project proceed. We urge the Government to delay any further proceedings until the unprecedented health crisis has been resolved and circumstances are reevaluated.
