Why does Bradford need Northern Powerhouse Rail?
As a country we must take positive practical steps to bring together the North and South and older and younger people. Bradford, as the 5th largest City in England and as the City with the youngest age profile, has an essential role to play in this process and connecting it to the Northern Powerhouse development is critical in achieving this role.

Siting a Northern Powerhouse Rail station in Bradford city centre makes sense not only for this city – putting, as it does, Bradford back on the main line – but for West Yorkshire generally.

This will open up opportunities for young people from across the north to explore the cultural heritage of each others' regions, as well as promoting economic opportunity.
