Supporters' Messages

As investors in Bradford and Manchester we would welcome much better rail links. This will reduce congestion, reduce pollution and increase investment.

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.

Judith Cummins MP MP for Bradford South

Having started my career on the British Rail in Bradford, this campaign has my full support and today as Mr Yorkshire even more so.
