Northern Powerhouse Rail Growth Strategy

Bradford Council has released its Northern Powerhouse Rail (NPR) Growth Strategy which sets out the ambitions to transform the economy through a new high-speed rail connection in the city centre that will better connect the UK’s youngest city to the opportunities of the future.

Why does Bradford need Northern Powerhouse Rail?

Supporters' Messages

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.

Having started my career on the British Rail in Bradford, this campaign has my full support and today as Mr Yorkshire even more so.

Keith Madeley MBE Mr Yorkshire

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.
