There is "relatively little evidence presented" on the regional and socio-economic impacts of the pounds 32bn HS2 programme, the report prepared for the House of Commons transport committee said.
London was likely to benefit from HS2 "possibly at the expense of less service-oriented cities on the line", said the report from consultants Oxera. The report was published as the House of Commons transport committee held the first of five hearings into the HS2 scheme which involves a high-speed rail line from London to Birmingham.
