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 right in the heart of the country. The connection to the city of Bradford will enable faster and better access to trade, industry and employment. It will bring people to our family friendly city with so much to offer in entertainment, dining and events, in addition to being the gateway to the beauty of the district such as Saltaire, Ilkley and the Yorkshire Dales.

Clare A Ilkley

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.
