When HS2 Ltd visited Ruislip with their roadshow in March, residents were left frustrated by the lack of actual answers to local peoples’ concerns and questions. You can read the Gazettes piece on that here. The roadshows are well staffed and look great but it is the detail that lets them down, maps and text that are inaccurate just feel an insult to families that face losing their homes.
People in other areas along the proposed route are feeling the same frustration, read more about the Great Missenden roadshow here.
To add insult to injury, HS2 officials at the roadshow tell you to submit questions in writing that will be replied to within 20 days. They are then not answered within their own timeframe, and Ruislip Against HS2 have found, as have other residents that the quality of the answers are of a lower standard than those given at the roadshow (and that is saying something!).
