Stoke on Trent mounts bid to be on HS2 route Stoke on Trent mounts bid to be on HS2 route

A business case prepared by the city of Stoke on Trent has been presented to the Government today, which urges the inclusion of Stoke and north Staffordshire on the route of HS2. The document has been produced by various specialists including economic consultants Volterra, who sit on HS2 Ltd’s Economics Advisory Committee. Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire Local Enterprise Partnership chair David Frost said that the business case 'makes solid financial sense for UK plc', while Volterra chief executive Bridget Rosewell said the Government and HS2 Ltd could not ignore their findings, which conclude that a proposed hub at Crewe is not the best solution.
