What a pathetic post . Talk about moaning for moanings sake.
Sheffield council should be applauded for fighting its corner to get the station where we have .
There was a great danger we could have missed out altogether which really would have made our great city a backwater village in generations to come.

The decision by Sheffield Council to lobby for a station at Victoria has well and truly back fired.

The poor folk of Sheffield will now have to endure 6 years of horrendous disruption at Sheffield Midland station whilst the station is reconfigured to accept HS2 trains. This will not only affect rail passengers, but road and tram users will also suffer as the tram and road networks around Sheffield station will need to be reconfigured.

Even worse, commuters who use local services will find that their train journey's will be longer to make way for HS2 as existing services will be cut and delayed, once the HS2 trains are running on the existing Midland line.

And all this could have been avoided if Sheffield Council had accepted the Meadowhall proposal, which would not have impacted one bit on existing rail services, or Sheffield Midland station.

Thank you Julie Dore!
What did you expect - it to just appear overnight. Stop moaning.
