For too long the North of England has been neglected by central government. To close the north-south gap we need better transport infrastructure in the region. This means better motorways and better railway connections.

That's why the Liberal Democrats will develop and implement the One North proposals advocated by local authorities across the region.

We are putting our commitment to transport infrastructure at the front and centre of our election campaign in the north. And we are committed to re-balancing the national economy.

To build strong and powerful regions not only do we need to devolve power and money, we need to make sure that they have the infrastructure they need.
