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

Better connectivity to Manchester and Leeds would transform our ability to recruit the best people from a wider area. It would also enable us to manage regional projects far more efficiently.

It is time for Bradford to be treated as the big city that it is, and as a vital part of the Northern Powerhouse. It is by a long way the largest city not currently on the proposed network, and bigger than some cities on it. Not only would a city centre station benefit Bradford, but the whole region.

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