The money they invested into HS2 could have been spent on a hyperloop system that would have been greener, quicker and more cost-effective. A project of this size should be forward-thinking, not based on transport that was conceptualised centuries ago. I also believe technology can reduce the number of people 'commuting' between major cities. Why spend £'s and valuable time sending employees all around the country, when you can hold meetings using video conferences or encourage working from home seamlessly. I'm certain that 'going to work' will become a thing of the past. There are so many benefits to working from home, especially in the tertiary sector.
