Bradford will get new station on HS2 route, says PM

Prime minister Liz Truss has pledged that Bradford will get a new railway station on the high-speed route to be built between Liverpool and Hull.

Speaking about the route on ITV, she said: “It will stop at Bradford. I'm very clear about that.” Details for the new route would be set out “in due course”, she added.

She has previously stated she would reverse the Government's decision to curtail much of the proposed Northern Powerhouse Rail (NPR) line.

In response to the prime minister's comments, Henri Murison, chief executive of the Northern Powerhouse Partnership, said: "Getting clarity on what exactly Northern Powerhouse Rail will entail is essential for businesses looking to invest here.

“Putting Bradford on NPR would correct one of the biggest mistakes from the Integrated Rail Plan - its young, diverse population and dynamic economy are hugely constrained by woeful transport links.

"If the Government follows through on this, their plans for growth and productivity start to look much more credible."
