The HS2 Liaison Committee met recently in its first meeting since the General Election and in its new home of the new South Northamptonshire Council offices at the Forum in Towcester.
There was an excellent turnout as ever, and it was useful to receive updates on matters such as the Chipping Warden Relief Road, traffic during construction and the situation following the end of the petitioning period in South Northamptonshire.
We also discussed the focus of the Liaison Committee going forwards, the progress of the HS2 Select Committee in Parliament and when it is due to report and the plans for HS2 at Euston station, which is a big issue for Northamptonshire commuters.
It is my intention to try and secure a meeting with HS2 officials, including a senior engineer, and the Liaison Committee to provide a full update on current plans for HS2 in the area. I hope to arrange this meeting as soon as possible.
