Evening Standard: "We need HS2 tunnel too, say residents"

Link to Evening Standard

"Hundreds of residents in a 'forgotten' part of London are demanding ministers lengthen the high-speed rail tunnel through their community.

"When Transport Secretary Justine Greening approved plans for the £32 billion HS2 link this month, she announced a 2.7-mile tunnel through Ruislip, in a concession to protesters who say their lives will be blighted by noise and disruption. 

"But their neighbours in Perivale and Greenford say they still face the prospect of 225mph trains thundering past their homes on the London-to-Birmingham route, as well as years of building work before its completion in 2026."
