Scotland commits to high-speed rail extension

The Scottish Government today earmarked up to £9bn of capital spending to extend England’s planned high-speed rail link into Scotland.
The announcement came just as UK Transport Secretary Justine Greening was telling MPs that a decision on the highly controversial High Speed 2 route had been put back to next year. Greening said she needed more time to consider her options.
Scotland’s high-speed rail commitment was included in a £60bn capital investment plan, running to the year 2030, set out by Infrastructure and Capital Investment Secretary Alex Neil.
