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

HS3 rail investment is key to the future prosperity of Bradford and to the District that surrounds it, not only for businesses and commuters within Bradford, but also for the tourist industry and those visiting the historic locations and beautiful Dales scenery that comprise this wonderful part of the North.

Cllr Gerry Barker Conservative Councillor for Wharfedale

Rail is once again the future. In Bradford we have a suitable, available location for an HS3 station. Supported by Leeds who will host HS2 alongside one of the already busiest transport hubs in the UK. Bradford is a great place to do business but we need to be able to get people to it!

Cllr John Pennington Deputy Leader of Conservative Group

Linking Bradford and Leeds with Northern Powerhouse Rail will transform connectivity between two of the largest and fastest growing cities in the UK.
