Commenting on an amendment to the proposed HS2 route through the East Midlands, DNCC Chief Executive George Cowcher, said: “This is welcome news and further underlines the additional economic value that HS2 will bring to the East Midlands.
“The new Strategic Rail Freight Interchange depot has the potential to create thousands of jobs, on top of the employment and economic benefits that HS2 will unlock and I’m pleased that Ministers and the developers have found a way to ensure that these two schemes can be brought together to complement – rather than detract from – one another.
“It is, however, important to ensure this proposed development does not have any impact on operations at East Midlands Airport.”
