Driving the North's Ambitions


On the back of surveying 5,000 businesses across the North of England, Addleshaw Goddard working alongside the Northern Powerhouse Partnership has developed a report exploring the impact those businesses foresee from Northern Powerhouse Rail and a new wider transport infrastructure across the North of England.

What is clear from the results of our survey of businesses across the North is that our business community is aware of and motivated by the opportunities Northern Powerhouse Rail will bring. They are ready to invest now to ensure maximum growth in the future.

Survey results

"NPR is critical for a future thriving Northern economy, and this report demonstrates how strongly this sentiment is held across the business community.

"Businesses are motivated by the opportunities NPR will bring, and certainty of investment in NPR by the government will allow them to make key decisions now which will allow their organisations to grow and prosper in the future."
