I hold regular discussions with the Secretary of State for Transport to discuss Wales’ rail infrastructure. From this Autumn, passengers travelling on the Great Western Main Line to and from Swansea will benefit from new, innovative bi-mode Intercity Express trains, experience faster journeys, with each train having an additional capacity of 130 seats. This will improve the travel experience of commuters and passengers and boost businesses in Swansea and South Wales.
