All the Yorkshire communities set to be bulldozed for HS2 development - and every road closure and delay

New environmental impact assessments have detailed how Yorkshire will be affected by the construction and operation of a HS2 line which will run through South and West Yorkshire up to a newly-built station in Leeds.

Building the line will involve the demolition of more than 100 homes and businesses, while cutting through woodland, by fishing lakes and across golf courses. It will also involve closures and diversion on some of the county’s busiest roads.
