IMG_0950Together with Town Cllr Phil Thompson, County Councillor Ryan Thomas and Labour‘s Assembly candidate Lee Waters, Nia Griffith MP met representatives of Arriva Trains Wales to discuss improvements to the train services at Kidwelly.

Nia explained,

“First we looked at the platforms on the station, and we have obtained assurances from Arriva that work to raise the platform is to be a priority: this work is necessary in order for disabled passengers to be able to use a ramp to board and leave the train. I will be keeping the pressure up on Arriva, Network Rail and the new minister for transport in Welsh Government as soon as the appointment is made after 5th May, to ensure that this vital work, which is long overdue, is done as soon as possible. We then stressed to the Arriva representatives the need to make Kidwelly a scheduled stop on all their services, rather than just a request stop to avoid confusion, and we will be pressing for more services and scheduled stops for Kidwelly in the new franchise for services which will be considered shortly.”
