Ian Price, CBI Wales Director, said:
“From upgrading Cardiff Central to improving signalling and reducing journey times, the announcement of greater funding to level-up Welsh railways will be welcomed by firms and commuters across the country.
“Getting people and goods moving around Wales more quickly and efficiently has long been a priority for Welsh businesses. It's also fundamental to boosting productivity and unlocking the full potential of the local economy.
“While these steps are obviously welcome, we still remain some way short of delivering the modern, low-carbon transport network that Wales needs. Full electrification of railways and investment in electric vehicles sit alongside rollout of full fibre broadband as central priorities to improve connectivity.”
