Can I ask all my forum friends to please sign the petition to stop the HS2 passing through our lovely village. :redface:
Please, sign the petition and ask your friends and relatives to do the same as this railway line will destroy the local countryside and villages of Drayton Bassett, Middleton, Hints, Hopwas, Whittington and many, many more rural parishes. :cry:
YOUR COUNTRYSIDE NEEDS YOU !!!!!!!
I haven't read the petiton summary but think the stated facts have little substance in reality. One train, passing every 90 seconds at 250mph would give no safety margin if there were a breakdown or other incident with catastrophic results.I've just had a quick scan of the report at:- https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/stop-hs2.html - "up to 40 trains per hour (1 per 90 seconds), a quarter of a mile long, going past at 250mph". Who do they think will be using these trains that they need '1 every 1.5 minutes? Where are they coming from and where are they going? I must admit I haven't taken in the full report, because it makes me so mad. My first thought was, bring back the trains, but, apparently they're not satisfied with people arriving every half hour, they want people moving around every 1 and half minutes. Forgive me if I have the wrong impression but, I hate 'progress'.
