The Transport Minister Edwina Hart has announced a £24m investment to transform five railway stations across Wales.
The money will be used to improve customer facilities, platforms and access at Aberystwyth, Pontypridd, Port Talbot Parkway, Rhyl and Ystrad Mynach stations.
The ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) will give £17m to the project alongside contributions from the Welsh Government, Arriva Trains Wales and Network Rail.
The news comes as a report found train stations in Wales are less well-used, less accessible and have low-satisfaction levels.
