Train operator Great Western Railway has welcomed the DfT’s response to the Wales Affairs Committee report on Railway Infrastructure in Wales.
In its response to the report, the UK Government has partially accepted a recommendation to create a dedicated forum to deliver improvements for customers.
GWR’s Director for Wales, Richard Rowland, said:
“We support the aspirations of both the UK and Welsh Government to improve rail services in Wales and very much look forward to the new senior level joint Board.
“Good rail connections are a driver for strong economic recovery, for environmental benefits and for bringing communities together. The report sets out a number of opportunities for rail in Wales, and we are committed to playing our part.
“We believe in a collaborative, partnership approach and we are ready to work with both Governments, with Network Rail, with TfW and with our customers and communities to find the right solutions to encourage more people to move from private car to rail.”
