Why does Bradford need Northern Powerhouse Rail?
Bradford is a fantastic city in a multitude of ways. However it currently lacks the rail connectivity and speed that its size, heritage and cultural & economic potential merit. A Northern Powerhouse rail hub for Bradford is essential to both the district and the region's prosperity, sustainability and resilience.

A city centre station and through service will be transformational for Bradford and has the ability to be a powerful contributor to the economic future and social well being of the city, the district and the wider region. A once in a lifetime opportunity that should not be lost.
Gerald Jennings Chairman of the West and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce
This will open up opportunities for young people from across the north to explore the cultural heritage of each others' regions, as well as promoting economic opportunity.
