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.
