The Welsh Secretary, David Jones, will visit Llandudno today to discuss the possible electrification of the North Wales Railway Line.
Earlier this year the UK Government confirmed plans to electrify the line from Cardiff to Swansea, and lines in Ebbw Vale, Maesteg, Merthyr Tydfil and the Vale of Glamorgan, as part of a UK-wide £9bn investment in the rail network.
Today, the Welsh Secretary is expected to reaffirm his commitment to the electrification of the North Wales line.
