Officials are working closely with Leeds City Council and the city region and Sheffield City Region to ensure Yorkshire has good transport links to the proposed HS2 route.

To support this, I provided Leeds and Sheffield city regions with funding to prepare Growth Strategies. These growth strategies cover how transport links will spread the benefit of HS2 across Yorkshire.

Furthermore, Yorkshire will be at the heart of the proposed Northern Powerhouse Rail network with stations in Leeds, Sheffield, York and Hull boosting connectivity across the north of England.
