Wales lobbies for four new rail stations

12 June 2020

The Welsh Government has proposed four rail stations to the third round of the UK Government’s New Stations Fund. The stations are: Deeside Parkway on the Borderlands line (Wrexham-Bidston); Carno on the Cambrian mainline between Shrewsbury and Aberystwyth; St Clears in Carmarthenshire; and Ely Mill on the City Line in Cardiff. Welsh transport minister Ken Skates has also invited the DfT to discuss further priorities for rail investment, including new stations at Greenfield and Magor. The Welsh Government has put forward reopening the Amlwch branch in Anglesey to the ‘New Ideas’ stream of the Restoring your Railway fund, and suggested restoring services to Abertillery in South Wales to the ‘Accelerating Existing Proposals’ stream. It has also reiterated the case to reopen Aberystwyth to Carmarthen and Bangor to Caernarfon.
