Dear Editor,

So the controversial HS2 rail line is going to go ahead at a cost of £100 billion.

From my experience, trains don't run on time and after often cancelled with standing room only – ask any London commuter.

The money could be better spent to improve the existing trains and infrastructure with more carriages and better punctuality.

Train fares are also very expensive, they could be reduce so more people can travel.
