Could rail construction delays threaten ‘levelling up’ in north of England?

Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Could rail construction delays threaten ‘levelling up’ in north of England?” – below is their description.

Political leaders in the north of England say the prospect of a lengthy delay to new improved transport links for the region are “completely unacceptable”.

A detailed plan was due this summer, but now it won’t be ready until autumn at the earliest, prompting complaints from three Labour elected mayors.

The government has insisted they remain “absolutely committed” to Northern Powerhouse rail.
