    Let’s play guess the shortlist! The usual suspects plus a couple of young upstarts so the commissioning body can claim to be forward thinking whilst making a predictable decision behind closed doors

    Why is the UK so obsessed with prequalification? Is there any real evidence of any benefit in this methodology other than for the consultants employed to manage the process?

    HTA are good at desecration and inappropriate development check out their monstrosity going up near East Croydon station

    South Norwood must be coming up if this kind of stuff is being approved

  • Comment on: HS2 review: Architects speak out in support of under-fire project

    Hmmm's comment 27 August, 2019 1:11 pm

    Over the weekend a family member with expertise in transportation made a point that it would probably only benefit those who would be able to commute from the midlands into their well paid jobs in London rather than attract the very same people to move wholsale into the very places HS2 is meant to be invigorating thus only actually benefitting the ‘incomers’ inflating local house prices and creating dormitory suburbs

    If we were a nation with the same land mass as say France then an argument in favour might be supportable to connect large distances at speed but as we’re not then this can only be yet another misguided ‘grand projet’ only really supported by those who have the most to gain in terms of kudos and financial benefit
