If the government hadn't been so dumb in insisting HS2 had to serve Manchester Airport, (for no discernible traffic benefit), then the M602 land could have been a path for HS2 into central Manchester to a station on the old Manchester Exchange site, and with no tunneling needed at all. The M602 is way too wide for its traffic levels, and could be converted to a single carriageway road, releasing space for HS2.
As it is now planned, an 11 mile tunnel has to be bored to bring HS2 to Piccadilly. Needless expense !!
