Today's meeting in Llandudno to discuss making a business case for electrifying the North Wales mainline was a success, says the Welsh Secretary.
I'm delighted with the outcome of today's meeting. We have now started the process which, I hope, will result in a strong and robust business case for the electrification of the railway line from Holyhead to Crewe. This will not be a short process . Nevertheless this is an important first step and a clear demonstration of the commitment of the business sector and all levels of government in Wales to the electrification of the main railway line in North Wales. I look forward to seeing the business case develop.
