Supporters' Messages

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.

I have long been campaigning for greater investment in the North's transport infrastructure. I am championing the Next Stop Bradford campaign to help bring Northern Powerhouse Rail to Bradford city centre and ensure all people in Bradford, and my constituents across Shipley, are connected to the opportunities of the future.

Philip Davies Conservative MP for Shipley

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.
