Why does Bradford need Northern Powerhouse Rail?
Placing Bradford, which is in population terms Britain’s youngest city, on the Northern Powerhouse Rail route is vital to unlock our future workforce for Manchester as well as create a conjoined City Centre for Leeds and Bradford. I personally will be working hard to support the leader of the Council Cllr Susan Hinchliffe, her Chief Executive Kersten England and West and North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce as part of Next Stop Bradford campaign to secure a city centre station from Government.

As the main airport connecting Yorkshire to the rest of the world and being only 11km from Bradford city centre, a fast, reliable and high capacity NPR connection to the city is key to the future economic prosperity of Bradford and the Airport.

The hard evidence is stacking up in favour of a city centre station and this is supported by businesses and people in the community who agree there is a vital demand for this investment in East to West connectivity.
