Conwy Valley line commuters have been left entire days without trains services.

Leader of the Welsh Conservative Party, Paul Davies AM, said Blaenau Ffestinog, Betws-y-coed and Llanrwst had had no trains all day on seven of the last 20 weekdays.

This comes following the launch of the new Transport for Wales (TfW) service last month which first minister, Carwyn Jones, said would provide the area with a high quality, affordable, and accessible train network.

Other issues were reported on the Chepstow and Caldicot to Newport and Cardiff line; and Aberystwyth to Shrewsbury line which saw Transport for Wales issue an apology in various Welsh newspapers.

Mr Davies said: "If the problems of Transport for Wales are serious enough to warrant full page apologies in several newspapers, it surely means the Welsh people are angry and concerned at the state of rail capacity in their country.

“I am certain they will be even angrier after seeing him dodge questions on this today.

“The early failures of TfW are disappointing but hardly surprising.

"The Welsh Labour Government have built a track record of failing miserably at transport and infrastructure projects over the years, so we should continue to expect such failures.

“Going forward, we need far more transparency and dialogue from the Welsh Government, less deflection and obfuscation.

"Hopefully, the next First Minister will change things, but given the Labour Party’s track record, I sincerely doubt it.”

These comments came following Mr Davies' questioning of Mr Jones on the matter and what their plan of action was to be in resolving the capacity issue with its stock.

The leader of the opposition also questioned the transparency of the Welsh Government surrounding the tender specification against which the potential rail operators were to bid in order to win the current contract, as Mr Jones has refused to make it public.

The First Minister has since conceded the document will be published, but refused to give any timeframe.
