Boris Johnson backs high-speed Leeds to Manchester rail route

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has promised a faster rail route between Leeds and Manchester, claiming the benefits would be "colossal". In a speech in Manchester he gave his backing to the trans-Pennine transport link to "turbo-charge the economy". Standing in front of Stephenson's Rocket he said mass transport systems enabled people to prosper. Greater Manchester mayor Andy Burnham said he wanted "to see real action now to back up the prime minister's words". He said the full details of the Leeds-Manchester route would be published in the autumn following the review into HS2. An audience of about 100 people gathered at the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester to listen to Mr. Johnson's speech. He set out the four "ingredients" for the success of the UK as liveability, connectivity, culture, and power and responsibility. He said this meant areas having great public services, enough affordable homes, safe streets, fast broadband, and more responsibility and accountability for local areas. In June 2019, the Department for Transport would not confirm when a decision on HS3 would be made but estimated it could cost up to £39 Billion.
