Transport for Wales has unveiled a rolling programme of station improvements worth £194million.

By the end of the first five years (of a fifteen-year programme), the vision will deliver free wi-fi at stations, ticket machine upgrades, shelter upgrades, CCTV, improved station accessibility and the conversion of disused station buildings for community uses.

At least 1,500 new car parking places will also be provided across the Wales & Borders network to encourage people to use public transport for at least part of their journey.

Economy & Transport Minister, Ken Skates (Lab, Clwyd South) said: “I warmly welcome Transport for Wales’ Station Improvement Vision, which will see a £194 million investment in railway stations the length and breadth of Wales and the Borders. Over the next 15 years this huge investment will vastly improve important gateways to our cities, towns and villages.”
