Reacting to the news that Prime Minister Liz Truss has committed to including a new Bradford station as part of Northern Powerhouse Rail, Victoria Wainwright, President of Bradford Chamber of Commerce, said:
“This is great news not only for Bradford but for the whole country.
“In order to make Northern Powerhouse Rail the success story for the UK that it can be, it is essential that it includes a station in Bradford.
“In committing to this move the Prime Minister has unlocked an estimated £30bn in growth and paved the way for the creation of 27,000 jobs.
“This move will further put Bradford on the map and give it the status it deserves.”
