What are being described as ‘final’ recommendations for Northern Powerhouse Rail have been made by leaders in the region, who are urging the government to give its support. Transport for the North has sent its official plan to Westminster, saying that ‘now is not the time to scale back on ambition’. Two priorities are leading the case being made by TfN. One is new conventional railways and upgrades to existing routes in the north and the other is the eastern leg of HS2 from the West Midlands to Leeds.
