Roads closed by HS2; PM's promise of compensation.

We're waiting for Paul Thornton to read a recent response and update the status.

High Speed Two (HS2) Limited,

Dear Sirs,

At the Red Lane/Hob Lane/Cromwell Lane junction in Burton Green, Kenilworth. Warwickshire, roads have been closed at the request of HS2 Ltd for a wholly unreasonable 3 month period.

This was raised by Jeremy Wright MP in a question to the Prime Minister on the second of September. The video is on line at the link below.

In response, the Prime Minister advised that “where there is damage to local roads HS2 will pay compensation.”

I would be grateful if you would provide any information held about the procedure for affected businesses, schools and residents to apply for the compensation that Mr Johnson regards as applicable.

Yours sincerely,

Dr Paul Thornton
