ABSTRACT
The author comments on the debate on the high-speed rail network (HS2) in Great Britain. He believes that some arguments against HS2 are based on short-term views. He argues that those who oppose the project consider the long term impact such as development opportunities and regional regeneration rather than simply transportation benefits. He suggests that government present details on how HS2 will proceed and be funded so local authorities and businesses can align their investment decisions.
