Reverse TFW decision for 2 hourly services
Reverse a decision for 2 hourly services serving Gobowen, Chirk and Ruabon in the December 2019 timetable in preference for a faster services from Cardiff to Holyhead which does little for for Wrexham County Borough constituents and a backwards step. These faster services will pass local stations without stopping.
https://news.wrexham.gov.uk/transport-for-wales-proposed-timetable-changes-from-december-2019/ . There was no consultation with key stakeholders on these changes whatsoever.
Why is this important?
Train Services are important to residents and the local economy given the Welsh Government Decision to declare a Climate Emergency. Reducing carbon emissions and investing in the Rail Network is critical to meet carbon emission targets by 2030. This line has increased passenger numbers at each of the stations year on year of up to 20% over the last 5 years and continues to grow.
How it will be delivered
Petition to be given to Lee Robinson Director of Development for North Wales for Transport for Wales.
