THE alleged failings in the government's procedures into the impact of HS2 have come under further scrutiny today.
David Levin QC, for the HS2 Action Alliance, told Mr Justice Ouseley that the Appraisal of Sustainability document produced into HS2 did not properly look at alternatives to the scheme.
He said: "The public has a right, under law, to be consulted on the environmental impact in the alternatives and the preferred scheme which this document fails to address."
He also expressed misgivings about the way changes were made to the route.
He said: "Changes were made (to HS2) without consultation or environmental assessment.
"The impact on people on the route has not been addressed either."
