Why does Bradford need Northern Powerhouse Rail?

Supporters' Messages

Bradford needs to have a stronger connection with the rest of the world, bringing the Northern Powerhouse Rail station to our city centre would be a great step in the right direction. It will show we are open for business and the begining of a fantastic journey for the North.

A Northern Powerhouse Rail station in Bradford city centre is not just about faster, more efficient trains and better connectivity - this investment has the potential to act as a catalyst for further regeneration in our city centre. I am supporting Next Stop Bradford to ensure Bradford makes the most of this opportunity and secures an even better future for all our residents and businesses.

Cllr Simon Cooke Leader of Bradford Conservative Group

The opportunities are huge and I see this launch of the Next Stop Bradford campaign as being just a start.
