Why does Bradford need Northern Powerhouse Rail?
HS3 rail investment is key to the future prosperity of Bradford and to the District that surrounds it, not only for businesses and commuters within Bradford, but also for the tourist industry and those visiting the historic locations and beautiful Dales scenery that comprise this wonderful part of the North.
Cllr Gerry Barker Conservative Councillor for Wharfedale
Bradford is ideally situated for this in the centre of Yorkshire and with the ongoing growth of Bradford's businesses this will benefit not only Bradford but the surrounding business and rural community.

On behalf of Bradford Civic Society, I'm delighted to pledge my support for the Next Stop Bradford campaign. Bradford is young, ambitious and hungry for growth so is the perfect location for a Northern Powerhouse Rail station that will transform the face of our city centre and improve economic prospects for the whole district. We're already at the heart of the country, now let's be at the heart of a new and vibrant east to west rail network too.
