Welcoming the High Speed Rail report Robert Hough, Chair of the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) said:

“The High Speed North report from the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) is a welcome call for greater long-term investment to deliver improved inter-city connectivity across the North.

“Here at the LEP we fully endorse the recommendations made by the NIC, but particularly wish to emphasise the importance of linking Liverpool into HS2 and HS3 investment plans, as outlined in the report, which will play a critical part in realising the Northern Powerhouse vision.”
