Today, Shadow Transport Minister, Natasha Asghar MS went to visit the work taking place on the Cardiff Bay Line by Transport for Wales, meeting the team delivering the double tracking, platform refurb and future proofing of the station.
Commenting on her visit Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Transport, Natasha Asghar MS said:
"The bustling work on the Cardiff Bay line instils hope for its future, which has often been underutilised. Such crucial investment is indispensable for revitalising the railways and attracting passengers as they recover from the pandemic.
“The development of the Cardiff Crossrail project, supported by £50 million of Levelling up funding from the UK Government, hinges on the essential work being carried out on the Cardiff Bay line. This project is poised to propel Cardiff's transport network into the modern era.
“Kudos to AMCO and the TFW team for their outstanding efforts on the site. Future users of the Cardiff Bay line will undoubtedly appreciate the tireless work they've invested in creating a cutting-edge transport link. Now, it is imperative for Labour to provide sufficient funds to ensure the success of this project within a timely manner."
