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.

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
