Homeowner clears legal hurdle in bid to stop ‘catastrophic’ Euston tunnel design

Comment

An ex-colleague of mine was involved with representing some residents in East London when there was a collapse of the ground during HS1 tunnelling. I recall that he told me at the time that HS1 were very fair about resolving the problem. I would like to think that those involved with HS2 would be the same but, moreover, that they would do everything they could to stop something going wrong in the first place! One problem at the moment is that feelings and opinions on HS2 are being pumped up at the moment for various reasons with, I suspect, various agendas more opaque than others. Personally I am in two minds over whether HS2 is a good idea or not. It is a lot of money and the estimate should have been better in the first place. I do wonder if the promotors were too optimistic in order to get political approval. However, doing nothing at all is not an option. Jeffrey (an Engineer)
