Ceredigion Welsh Liberal Democrat MP Mark Williams has welcomed the news that the Assembly Government Minister Edwina Hart has granted funds for a scoping study of up £30,000 to look into the feasibility of re-opening the Aberystwyth to Carmarthen rail line.
Commenting Mark Williams, a supporter of the campaign who took a delegation from Traws Link Cymru to meet the Secretary of State for Wales earlier this week, said:
"This is welcome news which I hope will further the case for the reinstatement of the Aberystwyth to Carmarthen line, and take the campaign a vital step further towards its goal.
"The Traws Link Cymru campaign group has worked hard and achieved a great deal since they started. They are to be congratulated and I look forward to working with them further in future on this issue."
