I was asked by Redshift Radio to interview 'a government spokesperson'. to my surprise it was Home Secretary Teresa May.
To hear this, and interviews with , Michael Jones, Cheshire East lead, John Lea, All Change for Crewe Director, Eward Timpson, MP, Dennis Dunn, pro-vice chancellor of MMU and Peter Waterman, , tune into Redshiftradio.co.uk and look for HS2 podcast on the business programme
Message in brief is:
- its going to be great for Crewe
- The next HS2 train is due to leave the platform in 2033
- No one knows how many will stop in Crewe and how many will go underneath it, but we need to campaign intensively to get the best deal for the town.
It seems that the tunnel will go underneath most of Crewe, at a depth of 35
metres.and northwards under the cemetry to emerge in fields beyond coppenhall at Parkers Row as below:
The most interesting for local active travellers was local MP Edward Timpson who showed he knows, and cares about active travel. on this 'outtake' recording you will hear him volunteering his support for Connect2 path and proper integrated transport links.You can hear the whole programme, featuring interviews with Pete Waterman, Dennis Dunn, [Pro vice chancellor of MMU] John Leas, [Mornflake and All Change For Crewe boss] Edward Timpson and Teresa May.
