Welcome to HS2 Amersham Action Group
HS2 Amersham Action Group is a community group formed by local people strongly opposed to the Government’s proposal to build a new 250mph high speed railway (High Speed Two) from London to Birmingham, then onwards to Manchester and Leeds, at a minimum cost of £34,000,000,000.
We campaign locally, and nationally with our partners, to Stop HS2. The case against HS2 is overwhelming. Expert opinion, and experience of high speed rail in other countries, has exposed the claims made for HS2 as ‘myths’. There is clear evidence that the business case and environmental case for HS2 simply do not add up.
The local impact of HS2 will be immense. Phase One cuts right through the heart of Buckinghamshire and the Chilterns. For all of us in this area, the construction will bring years of major disruption to our countryside, communities and roads. By the time HS2 is finished, some of the loveliest stretches of the Chiltern countryside will be lost for ever. Some of our communities will literally be torn apart.
Following the government’s announcement that HS2 “will go ahead”, the fight to Stop HS2 is moving to the courts. We need your help for this crucial, but costly, stage of the campaign.
