Confidence in north Wales metro, transport secretary says

A north Wales metro system will deliver for the economy, the transport secretary has said.

The Welsh Government's proposed public transport scheme would include a mixture of trams, upgraded railway stations and better bus services.

Ken Skates said cross border links were more important than ever in the aftermath of the Brexit vote as he launched a vision for the new metro at Rhyl bus interchange.

The 'metro map' has come under fire for excluding Anglesey, Gwynedd and Conwy.

It was a major promise in Welsh Labour's 2016 manifesto ahead of the Assembly election.
