Network Rail opens rail maintenance depot in Hereford

Network Rail has officially opened a new maintenance depot in Hereford.

The £1m complex will serve the network between Cwmbran and Ludlow and much of the railway in Heart of Wales.

Mark Langford, from Network Rail, said: "Hereford, which is at the heart of the Marches railway network, makes the town an ideal location".

The route managing director added that a modern transport infrastructure was vital to an economy and they were "well positioned to meet that need".
