Grimshaw and Arup unveil designs for HS2 stations in West Midlands


HS2 hasn’t been approved, but they are appointing architects and publishing seductive designs. If you visit Harefield and Northwood near London, they’ve started enabling works and plotted the limits of deviation on the ground. Who would dare stopping it now? The Treasury? Parliament? I’m really looking forward to arriving in Birmingham 7 minutes early, while the rest of the system is poorly maintained and un modernised?! If you asked Brunel, he would say get to Birmingham at 500mph by these aeroplanes, not a meandering 250mph?! And an East West connection in the North is needed more than this redundant 19th century North South link. Sorry Neven, David
