No date for Swansea electrification

The Government is committed to electrifying the railway to Swansea, Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns said on January 19. However, he gave no firm commitment for a date when the overhead line electrification would be ready.

“The Government is committed to improving services for passengers on the Great Western line, from Paddington to Swansea. We are continuing to invest £2.8 billion on electrification on this route to deliver better services and new trains with thousands more seats.”
