This case study refers to the ex-ante assessment of the case for the development of a High Speed Rail network in England for domestic travel connecting London and cities to the north of England. The proposal, at an estimated cost of around US$24 bn is the second largest investment decision in the English transport system for many decades. Although the cost of the scheme is distinctive, the decision is being taken within the same framework which governs all major transport infrastructure investments in the UK. The scheme is so large and significant to the UK it has led to the development of a bespoke sustainability appraisal, the design and application of which are fundamental to the themes of this book. The chapter explores the relationship between the politics of major infrastructure decisions and the purpose and scope of influence of sustainability assessments.
