Four cities, 1 hour, 1.3m people: new northern rail plan revealed
Northern Powerhouse Rail – a fast line between Bradford, Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool – could create 850,000 jobs, says transport body
A new fast rail link between Liverpool and Leeds would allow 1.3 million people in the north of England to reach four cities in less than an hour, adding billions to the local economy, according to the body tasked with improving transport infrastructure in the region.
Transport for the North (TfN) has proposed a new train line that would connect Bradford to Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds and beyond – a transformational development for a city severely hampered by lacking a through-railway station.
