[英伦广角] 2014-11-01 英国政府支持新建高速铁路3号线

提高英语听力能力 找对方法很重要!
It is perhaps the off they can not afford to refuse,high speed rail for the ambitious northern cities like Manchester,Leeds,Liverpool and whole.The government says this is a fast track to a better life.I think this is a real oppurnity here, the chance is spoken about to create a northern power house by looking at how we can use high speed rail and other infrastructure to link our great nothern cities, so we realy have a  proper ballance,reballance of our economy, that is what this is about.Of course there are thousands of people who are dead against this plan. HS2 on the nothern extention of it could cut right across where I'm standing in this village in notheast Leeds. And it is in the city where the chairman of the project will give his recommendation for the plan.But that's before the prime minister and chancellor have given their backing to the next stage HS3.The first stage of HS2 starts at London Huston, and it's due to opening at 2026. It heads northwest connecting Bermingham and before heading up to Lichfield. Phase 2 of that network, timetabled for 2032 recomended road through Crewe untill Manchester, and throuth Nortingham untill to Sheffield and Leeds. New plans will be annoucnced for HS3,a new tunnel under the panlines connecting Manchester to Leeds. The idea the travelling time will be slashed. For example, Manchester to Leeds is now around 55 minutes.In the future,it could be as little as 26 minutes.We can enable the north to compete.We can have to be very bold on our investment for the transport for the north.We just spend,we are just at the  stage of spending 50 billion pounds on cross rail in London. And I believe the north has its fair share on investment too. The campaign against HS2 has long questioned the figures it promises and impact on towns and villages.Putting it across behind here,14 meters in the air,a concrete......Joe Mason,whose house lies on the route of northern extention near Leeds,says her house value has droped by more than 300,000 pounds.We have won every argument,economic argument,environmental arugment, the capacity argument,every single argument.It will not help the north.All these things experienced,this is politically driven,vanity project. It's the flame that's being fanned by the people who stand to do very well after it. The government knows it must keep up its pace of this controversial project or risk stalling it altogether.With  the election looming,winning over the north with the promise of better times could win crucial votes.
