North Wales Assembly Member Mark Isherwood has called for the Welsh Government’s North Wales Transport Taskforce to work with the North Wales Ambitions Board to maximise rail modernisation in the region.
Mr Isherwood raised the matter with the Finance Minister Jane Hutt.
Speaking in the Chamber, he said: “The North Wales Ambition Board has appointed a Connectivity Project Manager, based in Denbighshire County Council, but working across the six north Wales counties, looking primarily at rail modernisation across North Wales from Crewe to Holyhead.
“How will you ensure that the task force appointed by the Welsh Government, looking at north Wales transport and chaired by a colleague who is sitting to your right at the moment, will liaise with the North Wales Ambition Board in order to maximise the potential for that capital investment in that rail connectivity across north Wales to Anglesey?”
The Minister replied: “It is critical that this is a joined-up Government approach to the North Wales Ambition Board, particularly in relation to transport links.”
