Local MP Presses for Improved Railway Line

Mark Tami MP for Alyn and Deeside has asked the Minister for Transport in Parliament for the electrification of the Wrexham to Bidston and for a railway station at Deeside Industrial Estate.

After speaking at the debate Mark said, ‘It is vitally important that the Wrexham to Bidston line is electrified- as this would ensure a more reliable and regular service.’

‘By including a station at Deeside Industrial Park, which the line already passes through, the Industrial Estate will be more accessible for 1000’s of workers and ensure the line is used to its fullest capacity.’

Campaigners have been arguing for the electrification of this line since the 1970’s because it would give improved access for commuters and the inclusion of a station at Deeside Industrial Park would boost job opportunities for the surrounding areas.
