HS2 construction sites visit
John Bercow visited north Buckinghamshire villages Clavert Green and Steeple Claydon on Friday to see for himself the impact of the construction of HS2. He was accompanied on the trip by local councillors Angela Macpherson, Frank Mahon, Phil Gaskin, John Chilver and anti-HS2 campaigner Linda Knights.
The key issues discussed were the raising of the height of the track and the building of a batching plant at Calvert Green, and the destruction of the countryside surrounding Steeple Claydon.
The local councillors took their MP to the bridge over the track in Calvert Green to demonstrate the proximity of the track and the planned batching plant to the village.
