Fast rail is welcomed

Two of the region’s most senior business leaders have welcomed the news that the East Midlands will be connected to the UK’s High Speed Rail (HS2) network.

George Cowcher, chief executive of the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “This announcement is extremely welcome news and is something which the chamber has been lobbying on for a number of years.”

Peter Richardson, chairman of the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership, added: “In order for local businesses to develop and grow, they need to be connected to a rail network that not only brings London and the regions closer together, but also creates the additional capacity we need to compete. High Speed Rail will do just that.”
