Dear Readers,

The major story of the last seven days was the publication of proposals to revolutionise Britain's rail network by delivering a high speed rail network linking London to Birmingham, the East Midlands, and on to Newcastle, Liverpool and ultimately Scotland.

The GBP30 billion project is subject to parliamentary approval and public consultation with work is not expected to commence until 2017. Should all go to plan, about 10,000 jobs would be created – great news for everyone in the rail industry.

To read the full details of the proposal go to the Department of Transport's website at http://www.dft.gov.uk/pgr/rail/pi/highspeedrail/om
