Aberconwy AM, Janet Finch-Saunders, has called for reassurance surrounding the future of the Conwy Valley line.

Services on the line had to be cancelled recently with because of a lack of trains.

Arriva Train Wales customer service director, Bethan Jelfs, said they were working "extremely hard" to get all trains back in service as soon as possible.

Although a new contract has been awarded to KeolisAmey for the Wales and Border services Mrs Finch-Saunders has still called on cabinet secretary for Transport, Ken Skates AM, to assure the future of the Conwy Valley line.

She said: “The Conwy Valley line is the transport heart of the valley – and an essential link for many residents and visitors between our thriving seaside resort town of Llandudno, via Llandudno Junction, and the Snowdonia heartlands.

“At this time of year especially, it is essential that tourists visiting the area can rely on public transport to ensure their holiday plans are not disrupted.

“Local residents and workers, too, need to be confident in our transport links to know that they can get to work and appointments on time.

“This failure by Arriva Trains Wales to balance their stock effectively will have had wide knock-on effects, and the Welsh Government m ust carefully scrutinise this issue.

“I have sought assurances from the Cabinet Secretary with responsibility for Transport – Ken Skates AM – that provisions will be included in the KeolisAmey contract that such services will be operated with reliability and constituency along this route.

"I am pleased to note that Transport for Wales will ensure that their contractual obligations will include this, and will continue to monitor this matter as the new franchise develops.”
