Railway Infrastructure in Wales

Inquiry

We will look at where responsibility lies for the management of rail infrastructure in Wales, how funding is allocated to rail infrastructure projects across the UK and the share of investment Wales has received since 1994. We will also look at the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the rail network in Wales, and the potential opportunities of the Union Connectivity Review.
