Mark Williams welcomes funding for scoping study into Aber to Carmarthen rail line

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."
