HS2 line and the canals

Just been having a look at the proposed HS2 lines from Birmingham to Leeds and Manchester around the Midlands, some quite significant crossings of canals in this area which are not far from where our boat is at the moment.
These include:-
The Manchester line crosses the Birmingham and Fazeley Canal immediatley below Curdworth Lock 5, Leeds line parallel to the canal at this point.
The Leeds line crosses the Coventry Canal at Pooley Fields near Polesworth.
The Leeds Line crosses over the River Trent and Cranfleet cut within view of Trent Falls on a large viaduct.
The Manchester line crosses the Trent and Mersey at Fradley and the 2 lines straddle Kings Bromley Marina.
The Manchester line crosses the Trent and Mersey at Great Haywood and is not far from Tixall Wide, so that will no longer be tranquil.
The Manchester line runs parallel to Stone and not too far away.

I am sure there are loads of other impacts not only to canals.

Not good.
