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

A city centre station and through service will be transformational for Bradford and has the ability to be a powerful contributor to the economic future and social well being of the city, the district and the wider region. A once in a lifetime opportunity that should not be lost.
