NORTHERN political and business leaders have joined together calling for Government investment to make the promise of a “Northern Powerhouse” a reality.
THERE is a “compelling case” for a high-speed rail station to be built in Bradford, a study by a global consultancy firm has found.
Yorkshire Building Society has hosted more than 60 business and political leaders to hear about the case for further investment in high speed rail connections across the north of England.
“The time to invest is now” was the clear message from Bradford Council Leader, Cllr Susan Hinchcliffe, as she launched a new campaign to secure a Northern Powerhouse Rail station in Bradford city centre last month.
The need for better East – West connectivity across the North is undeniable, via road, rail and undoubtedly digital links. One notable example of what will address this need is Northern Powerhouse Rail.
Business, Council and community representatives have joined forces to demand commitment from the government and Transport for the North for a Northern Powerhouse Rail station in Bradford city centre.
