Transport for Wales and the Valleys Taskforce are running a roadshow campaign throughout South Wales so that local communities can learn about improvements being made to their transport network.
The events are taking place in Merthyr, Neath, Bargoed, Tondu, Ebbw Vale, Aberdare and Pontypridd.
They will provide locals with the opportunity to meet with Transport for Wales, local authorities and local Assembly Members to discuss future improvements.
Transport for Wales are supporting the Valleys Taskforce with their ambitious plans to make a positive difference to the lives of people living in the Valleys.
What did the officials say?
Deputy Minister for Economy and Transport, Lee Waters AM, Chair of the Valleys Taskforce said:
“We know affordable and reliable public transport is the number one issue for communities in the Valleys and improving transport options will provide better access to jobs, education and vital services.
“The local community has an important role to play in shaping the future of transport in the Valleys and the roadshow events provide a great opportunity for people to learn more and share their opinion on the way forward.”
James Price Transport for Wales CEO said:
“It is essential that we value the contribution communities can bring to our network and fully maximise the contribution that our services can bring to communities.”
