Rotherham and Doncaster again call on government to change HS2 plan

Rotherham Council leader, Cllr Chris Read, and Doncaster’s elected Mayor, Ros Jones, have written jointly to the government to reiterate their demand that the government reject the damaging ‘M18’ route proposal in favour of the ‘Meadowhall option’.

In their letter to the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the Secretary of State for Transport, the two leaders say; “Our ambitions, for our people and our place, are much greater than those set out in the proposals for a Classic Compatible spur service to Sheffield, with no main line HS2 station. We hope that you have similar ambitions for our region, our businesses and our residents.”
