Welsh Government funding is helping improve transport infrastructure in and around Wrexham town centre.
Wrexham’s Assembly Member, Lesley Griffiths, has welcomed the latest developments which will see approximately £320,000 being spent over the next year improving passenger experience at the bus station, as well as improving connectivity between the bus station and Wrexham General Station.
Work is already underway at the bus station with a series of refurbishments taking place, improving lighting, signage and pest control measures. Later this year further planned investment will upgrade CCTV, refurbish toilets and reopen the information office.
It forms part of the £10m investment announced last December by the Welsh Labour Government which ultimately aims to modernise transport infrastructure and services in Wrexham.
Further developments and improvements are in the pipeline for General Station, including the creation of a transport hub which supports the Welsh Government’s aspirations to deliver a North East Wales metro system.
Improving traffic congestion is also on the agenda with the Welsh Government committed to finding solutions to address issues surrounding Junctions 3 to 6 on the A483.
Lesley Griffiths AM said: “Improving our local transport system by instigating a fully-integrated North East Wales metro will not only benefit local residents but also provide a boost to the entire North Wales economy.”
“It is something I have long-campaigned for having secured funding to improve the Wrexham Industrial Estate link road and for the redoubling of a section of the railway line between Wrexham and Chester. I am pleased the Welsh Government recognises the importance of investing in and improving our region’s infrastructure and transport links.”
