Posted on 23 January 2014

Keele and Staffordshire universities issued a joint statement in today's Staffordshire Sentinel supporting proposals to bring HS2 to Stoke-on-Trent, with the aim of underpinning growth and boosting economic development in the area.

Professor Nick Foskett, Vice-Chancellor of Keele University, and Professor Michael Gunn, Vice-Chancellor of Staffordshire University, said, in what is thought to be a first joint statement by the institutions: "As vice-chancellors of the two universities in Staffordshire we are wholly supportive of new proposals to bring HS2 to Stoke-on-Trent."
