Valley Lines Electrification

Valley Lines are disappearing from plans for electrification.

The Ebbw Vale, Barry Island, Vale of Glamorgan, Penarth and Maesteg lines are not included in the list of lines to be electrified.

Shadow Transport Minister Eluned Parrott said: "The Labour Welsh Government used to say that the South Wales Valleys should be seen as a 'single entity'. But now they have left these lines out of plans.

"Why is Valley Lines Electrification, a project that has caused so much controversy, incomplete now it has become the responsibility of the Welsh Government to deliver?"

We, undersigned call on the Welsh Government to explain why its plans for rail electrification no longer extend to all of the Valleys, and stop backtracking on electrification.
