Commenting on the launch of the Northern Transport Strategy, John Longworth, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce said:

Businesses across Britain want to see better connections between our great cities, and firms in the North of England are no exception. The Northern Transport Strategy is a sensible list of priorities, but the next government must ensure that the critical road and rail projects it contains are funded and delivered. A strategy that gathers dust on a shelf won’t help improve business connectivity – only firm delivery commitments will.”
