Not so long ago Jed Clampitt was out shooting at some crude and out of the ground came a bubbling crude. Oil that is, and we know what happened next. The prosperity and wealth the Human Race has created over the last 100 or so years has been entirely based upon taking Carbon that has been stored underground for millennia and releasing it into the atmosphere in the form of Carbon Dioxide and Carcinogenic matter. Nature has responded by giving us Climate Change, respiratory illnesses and Cancer.
Whilst it is virtually impossible for us to reverse the process of Global Warming with man made technology, we can stop it dead in its tracks by switching to a Zero Emissions Economy. Grand Northern has been created to do just that. We started with the Zero Emissions Woodhead Railway, details herein and below, yet there is so much more to follow.
Our next project is to build Very Low Emissions ships using our own Super Eco Drive and this will be closely followed by the Quantum Loop, a 500+ mph Maglev line mass transit system between the Great Cities of Manchester, Birmingham and London. Imagine getting to the capital from Manchester in well under and an hour. What a game changer that will be. With a £60 Billion price tag, it will only be a few billion more than the HS2, which hasn’t even started yet. As with all our ECO projects, we aim to deliver a healthy return on investment and out target is to achieve a ROI of at least 7% at Nett Present Value.
And Don’t forget The Wonderful Woodhead Railway Zero Emissions Railway
We believe we have a robust business case which will enable the Woodhead Railway to be re-instated and reverse the complete lack of forsight which led to the utter travesty of it’s closure in the early 1980’s.
Extensive modelling based on recognised figures for HGV/LGV operating costs were employed to arrive at a suitable tarriff for using the Rolling Highway. The forecasted revenue stream, based on a notional journey fare for a 45ft articulated vehicle of £130 pounds each way, indicates that the break even point will be at 40% of capacity. Grand Northern’s aim within the first two years of operation is to achieve a level of utilisation equal to 60% or 1920 vehicles per day. We have also calculated a Benefit Cost Ratio value in excess of 4.
These figures are attractive to any would be investor and we are therefore confident that over 95% of the construction and start up costs can be sourced from the private sector.
Grand Northern is at present carrying out a full consultation with potential users of the route in order to ensure that the pricing we have used in our income forecasts has the potential to attract their custom.
