answer text <p>In March 2012 the Government received a report from HS2 Ltd: ‘Options for Phase Two of the High Speed Rail Network’, which considered the various station location and alignment options for a station in South Yorkshire, from a demand and appraisal perspective. The report found a station at Meadowhall would provide the best overall value for money.</p><p> </p><p>A further demand and appraisal report in 2013: ‘Demand and appraisal report by the MVA consultancy for phase 2 of the High Speed Two (HS2) rail network’ re-examined costs and demand at potential stations in Sheffield. The study re-affirmed Meadowhall as the optimal location for South Yorkshire.</p><p> </p><p>The reports where published at the time and are available on the GOV.UK website.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
