Ynys Môn Assembly Member Rhun ap Iorwerth has sought updates from Network Rail regarding plans to improve Holyhead Railway Station at a recent meeting to discuss rail developments on Ynys Môn and across Wales.
£1.2m of investment has been earmarked for improvement works to take place at Holyhead Railway Station in the near future, with Network Rail confirming in a meeting with the Ynys Môn AM that a range of stakeholders will be consulted on the most effective way to invest this sum in transforming the station at Holyhead.
Rhun ap Iorwerth said:
“This is an important station that has seen better days, but now there is a real chance to get various groups to come together and work collectively to improve it and deliver positive change for what is a gateway to north Wales at Holyhead railway station.”
In a meeting with Mark Langman, Network Rail’s Managing Director of Wales and Western, and Sam Hadley, Rhun ap Iorwerth also discussed plans to reopen the railway line running from Amlwch to Gaerwen on Anglesey.
Network Rail confirmed that talks regarding a lease to run trains on the line were at an advanced stage, and also confirmed that they would be willing to provide support for the reinstallation of the recently damaged Glanhwfa Bridge in Llangefni.
