A metro system for Cardiff and the Valleys would make the region more competitive with other European cities, according to a new report published today.
The Metro Consortium, which is made up of a range of stakeholders from the business community in Wales, commissioned the report which suggests a Valleys Circle Line to transform the city region's transport geography.
It says the metro should be far more than a rail project and that regeneration and economic development should be at its heart if it is to be a catalyst for a modern city region economy.
