Earlier this year, the Next Stop Bradford campaign hosted an event with over 60 businesses to discuss and debate the economic opportunities of Northern Powerhouse Rail.

Delegates heard from Cllr Susan Hinchcliffe Leader of Bradford Council, Tom Riordan Chief Executive of Leeds City Council, Jonathan Mottershead Senior Transport Planner at Arup and Henri Murison who at the time worked at Yorkshire Building Society.

The speakers discussed the key economic opportunities Northern Powerhouse Rail presents to the city of Bradford and explored how collaborative working with neighbouring towns and cities such as Leeds, will bring about the greatest economic benefits.
