And, apparently, HS2.


HiViz jackets were visible on the HS2 site in Chalfont St Peter this

It was a throwaway line in an article about the construction industry

A growing number of construction companies have said they will stop all
non-essential work to help fight the coronavirus, but others continue to
operate amid confusion over the government's advice.
Housebuilder Persimmon has joined others in pledging to down tools,

their tax money is going to be needed badly.
