Councillors rail against environmental and economic damage

The county council recently took the important decision to oppose Government proposals for a high speed rail terminating in Staffordshire

The clear consensus among councillors at Staffordshire County Council is opposition due to concerns about the devastating environmental impact and the potential harm to our economy. Many people don’t realise that existing mainline train services from our county would suffer.

This is an important issue for all Staffordshire residents. While the HS2 line ends in the south of the county, any subsequent HS3 line would cut through the rest to the north through the Trent Valley.

We believe an urgent national debate needs to take place on better ways of improving our transport infrastructure for the good of the entire economy.
