Why does Bradford need Northern Powerhouse Rail?
I have long been campaigning for greater investment in the North's transport infrastructure. I am championing the Next Stop Bradford campaign to help bring Northern Powerhouse Rail to Bradford city centre and ensure all people in Bradford, and my constituents across Shipley, are connected to the opportunities of the future.
Philip Davies Conservative MP for Shipley
Wider connectivity and agglomeration benefits of infrastructure investment in Bradford could be similar to those delivered in Birmingham through the development of the £750m Birmingham New Street Station. Such benefits anticipated, based on our experience of the delivery of the Birmingham station development could include jobs, access to training, apprenticeship opportunities and ultimately the boosting of regional economic output.

Bradford is fighting its way back to be a first class city again. It must not be passed by and therefore it is essential that it is included in the rail link.
