I took Sir Mark Worthington, the Construction Commissioner for HS2 on a tour of the current construction sites for HS2 in my constituency. During the tour I highlighted the current challenges faced by local residents some of whom he was able to meet.
For nearly 10 years, HS2 has been a significant issue in this Constituency. A number of my constituents are directly affected, with houses or businesses that are in or near the path of the line, and many more will be affected by the construction of the line and the disruption it will bring.
West Midlands Train have failed to meet contractual performance levels for several months, so I am requiring them to spend £20m to deliver a package of service improvements and compensate passengers for the poor performance they have suffered.
