It frustrates me. But I don't think it will change. 

Political gesturing and delays due to election cycles, and subsequently punting major infrastructure into the long grass, seem to be becoming more common place. 

After the Davies Report into airport capacity was delayed for six months in December, it looks like another major infrastructure scheme will also be subject to the whim of a politician and could be delayed whilst the new Mayor of London carries out a review, lobbies DfT, and brings into question the Euston HS2 Terminus. 

Britain needs HS2, and a link into central London is critical to it's viability. The knock-on effect of delays means cost increases, which the tax-payer can ill afford, and ultimately risks the scheme becoming nonviable. Hopefully this is a stutter, and things remain on programme for 2033...
