HS2 Jobs Boost?
3:36pm 29th April 2014
HS2 could mean sixty new jobs for Cornwall.
At the moment the service depot for the sleeper is up country.
But that could be switched to Penzance if the high speed rail development goes ahead.
Truro MP Sarah Newton has been asking the minister to think about it: "It is only really fitting to bring these jobs to Cornwall as it was Trevithick that invented the first steam engine in Cornwall and as Cornwall has a unique position in England and benefits enormously from EU funds this would be a very good deal for the British government.
"It will really enable us in Cornwall to benefit, not only from the massive railway investment that's being made by this government, but also from HS2 and making sure that every part of the nation really benefits from this massively important infrastructure project."
