The decision to extend the HS2 rail network to Leeds has been welcomed by the City Council, but councillors have called for additional investment in existing facilities.
Council leader Keith Wakefield said the extension offers a "unique opportunity to create a striking new gateway into the city centre" but added that the HS2 hub must link "directly into Leeds station"
He also said there must be "a significant government package of investment in its infrastructure, road and rail links to the rest of the city region area".
