AM secures rail commitment from Transport Minister

The Welsh Liberal Democrat Assembly Member for North Wales, Aled Roberts, has secured a commitment from the Transport Minister that the Welsh Government will be working with Merseyrail to deliver long-awaited improvements to connections between north Wales and Liverpool.
 
Mr Roberts said: “The recent announcement by the Tory UK Government that billions of pounds worth of rail improvements are being delayed or cut back has come as a blow to the people of north Wales.
 
“We have been waiting years for improved connectivity between north Wales and the north-west of England and it is important that plans for improvement to the Halton Curve are not jeopardised by the Tory decision; a recent report commissioned by Merseyrail suggested additional services to Liverpool via the Halton Curve should end at Chester rather than go through to Wrexham.
 
“I am pleased that the Minister acknowledges my concerns and that she and her officials are committed to working with Merseyrail to ensure that the necessary works go ahead despite the UK Government’s misguided decision."
