   HS2 2b Consultation Response    December 17, 2018

In summary - High Legh Parish Council

  • opposes HS2 on the principle of no value and the needless destruction of valuable green belt, agricultural and recreational land.
  • supports the Golborne Alliance proposal of upgrading the West Coast Main Line (WCML) between Crewe and Golborne from two tracks to four tracks as a better alternative than the HS2 Golborne Link.
  • proposes a cut-and-cover ‘green’ tunnel starting immediately after the Manchester Spur near Wrenshot House right up to the current proposed box tunnel under the M56. 
  • are of the view realignment of Peacock Lane is not required. The current road could be maintained across the route of the HS2 mainline and an underpass (as opposed to a bridge) could be created under the HS2 Manchester spur. 
  • proposes the following to be included in the Traffic Management Plan: One designated route to each of the compounds, roads to be improved in advance by HS2, roads chosen on the basis of proximity to major trunk roads and a service road onto the new A556 – the most direct connection with motorways. 
  • supports the Hoo Green residents’ proposals regarding the compounds around the A50.
