RTM: "Lords submit alternative route for HS2"


Link to web site
"An alternative proposal for how HS2 connects to Euston and HS1 could create better links within London with less local impact, Lords Bill Bradshaw and Tony Berkeley have argued.

"The pair have submitted an alternative option, which they have urged transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin to investigate as “a matter of urgency”.

"The route would include an east-west deep level tunnel with platforms, extending between Euston, St Pancras and Kings Cross. Fewer platforms would be needed and the route could use existing adapted Euston terminus, diverting WCML local suburban services into Crossrail near Old Oak Common."
