HS2, now it's HS3!
The HS3 high-speed rail link between Manchester and Leeds could help to create a 'northern global powerhouse', according to Tatton MP and Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne.
He said better road and rail links would allow cities across northern England 'to take on the world', as London has done. Much has been made in recent months of the possibility of an 'economic power line' roughly following the towns and cities across the M62 corridor.
The Chancellor said the plan could cost up to £7bn — but could be cheaper if existing rail lines were updated. Clr Michael Jones, leader of Cheshire East Council has stated that this would be the type of transformational change required for the North and the country as a whole.
