PLEASE tell how exactly will HS2 benefit Northwich? It bypasses us, ruins a bit of countryside, we have no direct link to a HS2 station do we? Will saving a few minutes on a journey from Manchester to London really make us competitive with Japan?

We will still be queuing on the A556 after it’s built and probably still be living under austerity that’s keeping us down and not be able to afford the sky-high prices that whichever private franchise runs it.
