The Shadow Minister for Transport, Russell George MS, has hailed a new public body- Great British Railways – as “pioneering” for Wales’ transport system.
He said: “Britain is rightly proud of its railway history and today’s bold announcement will build on that famed legacy.
“The Great British Railways body marks a new era, where Wales and the UK will soon boast a revamped transport system fully fit for the future.
“Passengers will be empowered by higher-quality services, more rail routes becoming available, as well as simpler ways of paying for travel.
“This pioneering step shows the UK Conservative Government is building back better.”
A new public body—Great British Railways—will integrate the railways, owning the infrastructure, collecting fare revenue, running and planning the network, and setting most fares and timetables.
