Lib Dem group leader on Sheffield Council, Shaffaq Mohammed, confirmed cross party support in Sheffield for the just announced HS2 route via Sheffield’s central train station. The high speed route will offer twice hourly journeys from central Sheffield to London. The news has been broadly welcomed by businesses and the public but there are some that oppose the decision with houses set to be lost in the process. Azz Mohammed reports for Sheffield Live!
Government has announced that Sheffield city centre train station has been approved for connection to the high-speed rail route HS2.

Since the publication of plans for HS2, the high speed rail line, it has emerged that one of the options to connect Sheffield runs through the Parklands Riding School in the village of Aston. Sheffield commuters are still waiting for confirmation as to which Sheffield station will be chosen with many locals hoping that trains will come Sheffield Central station or to Meadowhall, but an alternative route to the east of the city is thought to be preferred by the HS2 team. Sheffield Live! reporter Simon Thake spoke to Richard Samson, director of Parklands Riding School.
