Why does Bradford need Northern Powerhouse Rail?
Bradford is a fantastic city in a multitude of ways. However it currently lacks the rail connectivity and speed that its size, heritage and cultural & economic potential merit. A Northern Powerhouse rail hub for Bradford is essential to both the district and the region's prosperity, sustainability and resilience.

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
Bradford is ideally situated for this in the centre of Yorkshire and with the ongoing growth of Bradford's businesses this will benefit not only Bradford but the surrounding business and rural community.
