HS3 must come to Bradford, says Chamber

The Chamber is getting behind the campaign to ensure the proposed high-speed east-west rail link known as HS3 comes through Bradford.

Concerns have been growing that the city could miss out on the plans due to not having a through-station and it being a less direct route than other options; but now pressure is being put on those responsible to give full consideration to the implications of Bradford not being included.

Bradford Chamber’s President, Andy Caton, was recently quoted in the Telegraph & Argus newspaper as saying it would be a “dereliction of duty” by decision-makers if Bradford was neglected on this matter.

Chamber staff and members of Bradford Property Forum are now seeking to meet with transport bodies and local authorities to lobby for Bradford’s inclusion on the route.
