HS2

Circle Sq. Fortnightly Virtual Coffee Morning

Join us every other Thursday at 11am via Zoom. Everybody is welcome. Join the conversation. 

On Friday 30th April, we welcome Circle Sq. member Michael Gross to share his perspectives on the highly controversial HS2, the largest planned infrastructure project in Europe, that has been fraught with delays, management issues, mounting concerns over the exact route, and spiralling costs. It’s become a political ‘hot potato’ and yet, the go ahead for the next phase was approved earlier this year. Michael’s stance on HS2 is that it was doomed to failure from the day it started. In Michael’s words, “With no viable economic case from the outset, the motive of continuing represents our broken government at executive administrative and legislative levels and constitutes a clear and present danger to our democracy.” Let’s discuss!
