London, Aug 13 (THAINDIAN NEWS) An train expert in Britain said that the route of HS2 train should be linked from London to Birmingham. He claimed that this should be done because the ministers are obsessed with speed. Engineer Mark Bostock is the one who constructed the route used by the high speed train 20 years ago. He said that the government should learn to consider the train link between Dover and London.

He has now come up with a new route for the HS2 that will connect with Heathrow airport, secure Chilterns and will increase billions of pounds to the revenue. Despite the strong opposition from the MPs and the residents, the transport secretary, Justin Greening, is intending to push on with HS2 project. They people who are opposing are claiming that the project will cost a lot. Apart from this they as well say that the project will damage the area around, tempering with the natural beauty off the place where the project will take place.

The strategy of the HS2 route that Bostock has come up with is intended to pass through Heathrow Airport and the Great West Railway. He has been working for 20 years with an engineering group and therefore he is trusted with his claims. This route will enhance the connections between the international airports in the west countries.
