Rail plan 'essential' to economy say assembly members

Ministers are failing to deal with a major delay to a £36m project to cut rail journey times between north and south Wales, assembly members say.

They have urged the Welsh government to take action over stalled improvements to the Wrexham-Chester rail line.

The economy of north Wales depended on better road and rail networks, they said in a letter to the first minister.

The Conservative AM David Melding, who chairs the committee, told Mai Davies on BBC Radio Wales that the government had to push the rail improvements through.
