CEO of KDR Recruitment Welcomes Government Decision on HS2

“The announcement today that the Government will go ahead with plans for HS2, including the links to Manchester and Leeds, is fantastic news for businesses and the economy in the North.

“The crucial benefit of HS2 is the extra capacity that it adds. Shorter journey times is of secondary importance but being able to add extra trains will make a huge difference to people travelling on an overcrowded and unreliable service.

“What needs to happen now is that HS2 needs to be properly joined up with the existing rail network and other proposed developments and it needs to be completed in the most cost effective and efficient way possible. The North has waited decades for investment in the transport infrastructure and we need to see real change as soon as possible.”
