Improvements to rail connectivity between Liverpool and Manchester are being considered as part of the Northern Powerhouse Rail project. Options include a direct connection from the HS2 line to Liverpool.

Transport for the North is working closely with partners across the North to develop the strategic outline business case for NPR. This is an important milestone for the Northern Powerhouse Rail programme, and I look forward to receiving their advice in the new year.
