A £15 billion plan which could revolutionise transport across the North has been announced.

The scheme, which could more than double the number of commuters the transport system can cope with and cut some rail journey times by half, was presented to chancellor George Osborne yesterday.

The ‘One North’ report includes proposals for a 125 mph trans-pennine rail link that would reduce rail journey times between Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester to 30 minutes alongside further electrification and new trains for the existing rail network.
