Many people looking for the best storage Shewsbury has to offer will be keen to learn more about what route the HS2 route will take.
The controversial new trainline which has been in the offing for a number of years now, is in the final planning stages. The trainline, which will run between London, Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow.
Major construction contracts were awarded last week, worth £6.6 billion to complete the civil engineering projects including the development of tunnels and bridges between London and Birmingham.
David Higgins, chairman of HS2 Ltd, said: “HS2 was always designed to be much more than just a high-speed railway, and today we can see the opportunities it brings right around the country – spreading prosperity, acting as a catalyst for investment and rebalancing our economy 10 years before the railway even opens.”
However, there are concerns in some areas about the disruption the HS2 railway will bring.
For example, one village in Shropshire has raised concerns about the large number of lorries that are due to be moving in and out of the village as the train line is constructed.
Woore is due to see upwards of 500 lorries coming in and out of the village everyday for two months, though there are concerns that the work will take much longer.
A consultation is due to take place until 30 September so local people can be consulted on the plans which includes the removal of some street furniture which will allow the lorries to get down the street and turn around.
