Colwyn Bay Train Station improvements praised

Clwyd West AM Darren Millar has applauded improvements works at a busy train station after seeing them first hand last week.

Darren  visited Colwyn Bay Train Station to see the newly refurbished facilities on Friday and was hugely impressed by the works that have been carried out.

Arriva Trains Wales have invested around £500,000 in the station following calls for improvement which Darren made following a visit two years ago.

Darren said:

“It was great to return to Colwyn Bay Train Station two years on and see the improvements which have been made.

“For people arriving in Colwyn Bay by train, the station is the first thing they see. First impressions count and if we want to ensure that visitors return to the area, it is essential that we have a welcoming gateway into the town.

Passengers and staff are now able to enjoy a newly refurbished ticket office, improved disabled access, electronic mobile ticketing services, new bathrooms and a much improved waiting room. Also a new cafe will be coming to the station in coming months. 

“I would like to thank Arriva Trains Wales for listening to my calls for improvements and investing so heavily to improve the passenger experience.”
