Houses where compensated. It will give life to the North I think. The North has always lost out and this is a chance to make it better. Plus, business will be able to move making the country richer as a whole.

DebbieReed2020 they didn't necessarily want to be compensated though. Plus there's damage to the environment. They should just upgrade the existing rail network. This isn't going to benefit many.

I work for a company that works in rail and one of our engineers will lose his house with HS2, on one hand he is happy for the work, but the other, the loss of the home. Compensation will apparently more than make up for it though and will be more than the house value. It is a ridiculous amount of money being spent on something which a lot of us won't live long enough to see completed entirely and there's not many people in the North that want to go to London anyway, no matter how quick the journey will be. The majority of the tracks past the Midlands aren't on the electrification upgrade yet either, so you can double the £120 billion spent already in that alone

All for better transport links, but seems an incredible amount of money to be spending, which I suspect is likely to increase considerably before completion .

it cost a ridiculous amount of money and when it will be ready it will be already old.
