It's nothing more than a vanity project. It's being pushed so hard because a select few stand to make a lot of money out of it.

Meanwhile, essential services and support for the less fortunate or well off will continue to be cut to balance the books on this folly.

It was ripped up a long time ago I'm afraid Melisandre and for no good reason. It meant that heavy frieght trains now have to trundle through Coventry Station, holding up passenger services on the main line.
