Plans to modernise railways across Wales are unveiled

A major redevelopment of Cardiff central station and plans to electrify the north Wales main line are amongst Network Rail's ambitions for the next 30 years.

The Welsh Route Study forecasts rail travel into the Welsh capital will grow from 13m to 33m by 2043.

Its proposals aim to meet that future demand and improve connectivity across the country.

Tim James, head of strategy at Network Rail, explains the plans.
