20 Miles More sets out the compelling business and economic case for the additional 20 miles of track that would link Liverpool directly to the HS2 network East of Warrington. This 20 mile spur would be worth £8bn over 20 years in economic benefits and cost as little as an additional £1.5bn to the £42bn overall cost of HS2, a return of £2.70 for every £1 invested, compared to the projected £1.80 across the currently proposed network.
When & Where
20 Miles More Limited
20 Miles More is a campaign supported by a coalition of leading business figures and academics to have the proposed HS2 network extended to include Liverpool. At present Liverpool is the only major city in the North and Midlands not directly connected to HS2 and it is estimated that a branch serving the city would help increase the city region’s GVA by £8bn over 20 years.
