    Unless it was due to go under the homes of some very high ranking Party/ government officials, I am surprised to hear the opinions and feelings of the public are given such consideration in China.

    I'm not sure exactly what this non sequitur arises from. I was pointing out that it's much more difficult to build high speed and high capacity railways in the UK than it is in China, something that people seem to ignore when they comment on how things compare and rolling their eyes about what we have here. Usually the same people who object to the kind of policy measures that would allow things to actually improve.

    Should’ve just built HS2 parallel to the ECML up to Yorkshire. Mostly farmland, few hills, no Cotswold views to spoil. Would have cost a fraction of the chosen route, faster trains to Scotland. Manchester and Birmingham already have pretty fast trains to London.

    Ah but HS2 is not primarily about speed. It's about capacity. The WCML is rammed and needs relief. The ECML does not.
    HS2 is high speed because if you're going to build a new intercity railway, that's how you should build it.

    Well, the southern part of the ECML does need relief.

    Of course, 'just' building a route parallel to it would not be a simple matter anyway.
