High speed rail route altered to tunnel beneath Burton Green

High Speed Rail chiefs have agreed to a raft of route changes through Warwickshire in a bid to avoid lengthy battles with campaigners, including the replacement of a controversial viaduct through Burton Green with a less disruptive tunnel.

Detailed plans showing the revisions are still being drawn up and will not be published for another three weeks.
