Yes to High Speed Rail Campaign USHSR co-hosted a webinar on February 8th about the successful high speed rail campaign in the United Kingdom. The webinar can be viewed in the video above, including the question and answers that followed.
The Yes to High Speed Rail Campaign worked for the past year tirelessly rebutting the arguments of well-funded opponents and making the case for high-speed rail to members of the British Government and the public with messages of jobs, growth, mobility and railway capacity. The campaign mobilized a powerful coalition from across the political spectrum to support high-speed rail, which injected much needed balance into what had been a completely one-sided debate against HSR. The result was a national victory for high speed rail!
