Chief Executive of Transport for Wales, James Price, has stated that Network Rail’s south-east Wales Metro project is not only an important transport scheme but essential to improving the economy of the Valleys. The new metro system will see 95% of journeys on £1billion worth of new rolling stock and a huge increase in passenger capacity and frequency of services. Wi-fi will be available on all trains and free travel for children will be increased and half-price fares extended for those under 18.
