Aled Roberts, Welsh Liberal Democrat Assembly Member for North Wales, is challenging Wales’ Transport Minister to improve the rail network in North Wales. Aled says is concerned that “Wales will be left out of the proposed rail developments occurring in England, and become nothing more than an abandoned siding.”
Through Aled’s campaign he has;
secured £10m to invest in transport links as part of an Assembly budget deal between the Welsh Liberal Democrats and the Welsh Government.
”I am delighted to secure £10m extra for North Wales,” commented Aled Roberts. ” Too often our region is completely forgotten by the Welsh Labour Government, and my party is ensuring that this is not the case for next year’s budget."
Has saved commuter lines to Manchester and Liverpool from North Wales working with local campaigners and commuters.
Without improvements, business growth and employment will bypass Wales. This would be detrimental to the growth of local communities right across North Wales. Aled is campaigning for;
- the re-doubling of the railway line between Wrexham and Chester
- improved commuter links to Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham
- improvements to the A55 to Holyhead
