Lord Deighton calls for HS2 ‘readiness’

Towns and cities need to act now to become ‘HS2-ready’, according to a report by the independent Growth Taskforce led by former Lord Deighton.

Lord Deighton said: ‘Growth and regeneration won’t just be handed to us on a plate – we need to think big, we need to plan ahead and most importantly we need to work together if we are to really make the most of this…opportunity.’
