Petition Repeal the 2013 and 2017 HS2 Hybrid Bills halting all HS2 works immediately.
All works on HS2 must stop immediately. A full review of the differences between what was originally approved and current project fundamentals must be carried out. The Acts should be repealed. All ministerial approvals made to date should be forensically investigated. A new vote is needed.
The project being currently constructed does not fulfil the basis upon which the 2013 and 2017 Hybrid Bills were voted on and passed in particular on cost. Fundamental changes (e.g. speed and passenger numbers) deviate too far from what was approved.
