Supporters' Messages

HS3 rail investment is key to the future prosperity of Bradford and to the District that surrounds it, not only for businesses and commuters within Bradford, but also for the tourist industry and those visiting the historic locations and beautiful Dales scenery that comprise this wonderful part of the North.

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.

Linking Bradford and Leeds with Northern Powerhouse Rail will transform connectivity between two of the largest and fastest growing cities in the UK.
