Rotherham: Chamber says focus needs to be on finishing HS2 before talking HS3

Chamber chief executive Andrew Denniff applauds ambition but wants existing Government infrastructure projects finished first

Chamber chief executive Andrew Denniff applauds ambition but wants existing Government infrastructure projects finished first

Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce chief executive Andrew Denniff has given mixed response to news of a proposed HS3 rail link between Manchester and Leeds,

“Businesses have seen many proposals for better links across the north over the years,” he said.

“The ambition for a ‘northern HS3’ is positive, but we must surely focus on getting HS2 into construction first and agreeing within our own region that the new station should be at Meadowhall.”

“Businesses like to hear this sort of ambitious thinking, but will be far more impressed if the government’s existing infrastructure commitments are delivered, sooner rather than later.”
