A high quality, efficient and effective transport system is key to attracting investment and enabling businesses to grow.
How have we invested the money?
On our roads
There will be a number of major road improvements completed over the next 12 months. Key road projects being delivered at present include:
- A487 - Glandyfi
- A470 - Gelligemlyn
- A470 - Maes yr Helmau to Cross Foxes
- A477 - St Clears to Red Roses
- A465 - Brynmawr to Tredegar (Section 3)
- M4 - Magor to Castleton – Steelworks Access Road
We continue to allocate funding under the new Regional Transport Services Grant scheme. This scheme supports the provision of subsidised bus and community transport services throughout Wales. This includes £2.5m earmarked specifically for community transport.
The doubling of the single line section of the rail line between Loughor and Gowerton and the upgrade of Gowerton station, linked with Network Rail’s replacement of the Loughor Viaduct, has recently been completed. We are also investing in redoubling the majority of the single track between Wrexham and Saltney Junction, as well as associated track and signalling work.
We are developing the metro concept in south east Wales which will build on the electrification of the Valley Lines and Great Western Main Line to Swansea. We are also developing the metro concept in south east Wales to transform connectivity across the region.
We have secured the future of Cardiff International Airport and established a board to manage the airport at arms length from the government.
Grants and Investment
We have invested over £70m in Regional Transport Consortia Grant from 2010-13, which has supported Highway, Integrated Transport, Rail and Walking & Cycling schemes. We have also made significant investment in active travel, not just through Regional Transport Consortia Grant but also through Safe Routes in Communities.
