Eurostar hits 10m passenger target 15 years late

by Jeremy on 06-Jan-2014

On December 30th the Telegraph reported that Eurostar had at last hit its target of carrying 10m passenger a year – just 15 years later than planned. The accuracy of this forecast may well give some indication of the accuracy of the performance figures released for the proposed HS2 line.

Read the full article by Nathalie Thomas in the December 30th Telegraph – and note the penultimate paragraph. Yes, when Eurostar is at last able to claim success in hitting a key performace forecast, just a decade and a half late, the government wants to sell it off and allow others to reap the financial benefits of its success. That is what they would most likely do with HS2 as well – whether or not it meets any of its targets.
