I swear by the time they build HS2, we'll have invented mass teleportation and all forms of transport will be obsolete.

It will probably have cost more to scrap it at this stage, they'd be sued by all awarded contracts. . It's a mess, a big unnecessary mess.

China offers to build HS2 in 5 years
I say take it,

HS2: UK in talks with China over construction of high-speed line
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-51512831
[China's state railway company said it could build the line
in just five years and at a much lower cost,
according to a letter seen by Building magazine]

I still wonder how they can justify the monetary and environmental cost for the sake of less than an hour. ..
