Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry has thrown its weight behind the campaign
The Sheffield Chamber of Commerce has backed the ontrack4hs2 campaign as part of its wider support for HS2 in the region.
Peter Kennan, Sheffield Chamber of Commerce Transport Forum Chairman and a partner at Hawsons Chartered Accountants said:
“The project is a major engineering contract opportunity and Sheffield companies will see many spin off benefits during the construction phase.
“Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry has been and remains a big supporter of high speed rail, not because we specifically need a high speed railway but because of the present capacity constraints on our national infrastructure.
“We will be working with Sheffield City Region to try to maximise the benefits from this important project.”
