Better connectivity to Manchester and Leeds would transform our ability to recruit the best people from a wider area. It would also enable us to manage regional projects far more efficiently.

Bradford is a thriving Hub of resource for the North to assimilate, in its progress towards becoming a Powerhouse. This transport link is a vital connection to that resource: the time for action is now.

Bradford deserves a strong rail network to the rest of the country to showcase the hidden gems that the region has to offer, and to increase the profile of this unique and wonderful part of the country. It is also essential to attract businesses, students and visitors to the region in the numbers it deserves.
