A couple of recent Guardian articles about HSpoo.

Fingers crossed . I hope the recent leaks come true but I'm nof holding my breath. I own a field which the proposed line goes right through. Years a go they paid me to do surveys. Since then I have not heard a thing from them apart from a letter stating BJ had asked HS2 Ltd to halt any work on the Eastern leg . All very very quiet (in fact as quiet as the grave) on the Eastern front.

Japan - $3m - $30m per mile (Japan built early)
France - $4m per mile
Germany - $40m per mile
Spain - $40m per mile
Italy - $100m per mile
China - $40m per mile

HS2 : $400m per mile

Japan is building a 400mph supercooled superconducting levitating science fiction back-to-the-future flying MAGLEV at lower cost per mile than HS2

We're probably spending about £10k a mile, and the rest is taken up in bribes and slurp, to use a word some might be familiar with. :lol:
