Lee Waters Writes to Grant Shapps to Contest Funding Refusal

Lee Waters, the Welsh Government Deputy Minister responsible for Rail has written to the UK Minister for Transport Grant Shapps, contesting the refusal for funding for Carno and Ely Mill stations. The letter is supported by a Technical report from Transport for Wales which details why they thought that the reasons given for the rejection were incorrect. The letter and supporting report can be read on the Welsh government website HERE.

CSAG are encouraged that the Welsh Government are still supporting the opening of a station at Carno, and are pushing at the highest levels to move the project forward.
