High Speed Rail Consultation Ends
A consultation to find out what people think of plans to build a new rail line between London and the north has ended.
The government want to build the £30bn link through countryside in Northamptonshire and Buckinghamshire.
The Department for Transport say more than 30,000 people attended events held along the length of the proposed line, outlining the project. Trains travelling at 250mph would travel close to places like Brackley and Tingewick, but the government say for a lot of the line's length, trains would travel through tunnels.
There's huge opposition to the project, with campaigners worried that the business case for High Speed Two doesn't stack up, and that building it will wreck the countryside.
If the government decide to go ahead with the project, building work would start around 2018 and be completed by around 2026.
