Speto, "and a bridge to Ireland over a trench that can't be built over. Tho presumably without customs posts at either end." LOL! HS2 is a huge waste of money, IMO, they could easily run non stop Euston - Birmingham trains and take off 10 minutes, and use the savings to upgrade the network, rather than just one line.

HS2 has value at the right price point and above a certain cost is not worth it. The key is to know what the true cost benefit is.

Empty, but not unoccupied. And not so empty where the line is planned. And twice the population density of eg France. My main concern is that the govnt don't do well on large infrastructure projects, to say the least. It'll cost a multiple of original budget (as will Houses of Parliament refurb), and take hugely longer in the process. For what? All for infrastructure spend, but HS2 always seemed a strange one. [Bear in mind this is the same Boris who wants to build a runway on a man-made island in the Thames Estuary, and a bridge to Ireland over a trench that can't be built over. Tho presumably without customs posts at either end.]

Chucko - Japan has been building new Shinkansen lines - the most recent one opened just in 2016, and there is another line under construction opening in 2027. Almost all tunnelled or elevated so a considerably harder project than HS2. There's literally no reason why we shouldn't be able to build a high speed line in this country which is 93.2% empty land

More write-off's to come then if this happens, as no company does well on contract terminations and allegations of anything, even if no wrongdoing has incurred. c£100 bn is a waste of money. Its just a vanity project.

My point was KIE has around 2 Billion of HS2 contract work lined up Now the SFO are looking into possible corruption charges And Boris is looking for an excuse to bin it

chucko, focusing on the time saved between London and Birmingham is a bit of a red herring. The main advantage of HS2 is to get that intercity traffic off the current lines. It isn't about pinch points for freight and local trains, there literally is no more room for more of those trains on the current lines when they are also being used for the intercity trains. So new lines have to be built, whether HS2 or some other lines.

Daffy, they built their lines in Japan and France 20 or 30 years before hi-speed internet came along. TGV is a huge cost to the State. I do not know about other countries, but I suspect the same. HS2 is a sledgehammer approach to a coconut - sized problem. Spend the money by all means, but smartly.

It's way off topic but I get so fed up with the boomer NIMBYs moaning about HS2, or any other infrastructure development in the UK. High speed rail is widely prevalent and heavily used in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan, China yet somehow is completely infeasible and would be a waste of money in the UK, with our ancient rail network that can barely do 125kph. The arguments against it don't stack up. Japan has far more hostile terrain with mountains and valleys yet has managed to criss cross their country with high speed rail. The only argument against HS2 is from old fogeys that are more interested in preserving their unearned house price gains than investing in the future of our country.

Capacity is one thing, and speed another. Capacity can be increased by removing pinch points and more passing places so that slow freight can move aside more readily. That will cost a number of billions, but a fraction of the intended expenditure for HS2. Speed is barely relevant: I travel often from Oxford to London and it takes an hour or so on the Chiltern line. Some times, I go by bus - this takes an hour longer. So long as I have a WiFi or 4G connection and a charging point, I really do not care. It’s actually more comfortable. Nowadays, no time has to be lost irrespective of the speed of the train (within reason). Cutting 20 minutes from London to Birmingham for £30bn just seems absurd. And the same again for further routes. One could invest £5bn of that in subsidising the telcos to enhance 4G coverage and speeds - which Boris has already earmarked as an expenditure! I love trains and new tech, but this is patently a scheme of political vanity. HS1 was not as it was a part of a journey that was necessarily long and already with several legs. Still, traffic on HS1 was far lower than initial estimates.

topvest, part of the argument for HS2 is that it will remove a large amount of traffic from the existing network, thereby allowing expansion of local and freight routes which are very close to capacity. Whether that is enough to justify the expense of course I do not know.

Fat Bloke Finance. Woody invests in some naff biotechs. Woody invests in ALM. ALM invests in the same naff biotechs. ALM CEO ditched. ALM no longer supports further funding for the naff biotechs. WPCT has no money to support them (actually negative money - pledges & OD). Biotechs go to zero value a little earlier than they would have done otherwise. Add the STOB/ESL stuff, the CIR/WPCT Board stuff, the RAV/Guernsey stuff. The huge Touchstone/IP Group stuff. All heading the same way IMO.

It has emerged that two early-stage healthcare companies he ploughed new money into in February have dropped in value to almost zero. Precision Biopsy, which focuses on prostate analysis, and SciFluor Life Sciences, a drug developer, were once worth a total of $226m. They are held by the Woodford Patient Capital Trust (WPCT). It is understood that WPCT decided to write off millions of pounds after the technology incubator Allied Minds said it would no longer invest in the loss-making start-ups. Stockbroker Numis says it has assumed “zero value” for the two assets. WPCT announced on June 19 that its net asset value (NAV) had fallen by 4% after it was forced to write down the value of unquoted companies. Precision Biopsy and SciFluor were among those companies. Woodford put $4.5m of new investment into the pair in February. Allied Minds pulled back from life sciences after Precision and SciFluor failed to raise new financing. Woodford owns 8.9% of SciFluor, which was worth $95.4m at its peak in 2016. He has a 21.7% stake in Precision, which was worth $130.7m at its peak. The subsequent write-downs have wiped $30.4m from Woodford’s investments. Woodford Equity Income has a 21.6% stake in Allied Minds, whose shares have fallen more than 91% since their peak in 2015.
