"We need efficient, reliable rail links, particularly at this difficult economic time, and that's why I am committed to ensuring investment in and modernisation of our railways. I want to continue to build on the success that we have already achieved in securing a commitment for the electrification of the Great Western Main Line to Swansea, and the Valley Lines by developing the strategic case for modernising rail in North Wales, which will include electrification and linking to the HS2 network."
