network-rail2Network Rail has started work on the construction of a new car park as part of the £5.1m project to improve Llandudno station.
The scheme is being delivered by Network Rail on behalf of the Welsh Government and is part of the Department for Transport’s National Stations Improvement Programme. The project has been supported by the European Regional Development Fund, through the Welsh Government.
The work will improve passenger facilities at the station and make rail travel a more attractive option for people in the local area.

A Network Rail spokesperson said: “This scheme joins a number of other rail improvement projects in North Wales that will help deliver better journeys and boost economic growth in the area. The work at Llandudno will provide a welcoming gateway to the resort and we would like to thank people for their patience while we improve their station.”

The Minister with responsibility for Transport, Carl Sargeant, said: “The upgrade of Llandudno Station is the first in a new package of station improvements that the Welsh Government is supporting as we strive to make rail travel more comfortable and attractive to the public.
“In addition to providing a positive first impression for visitors to Llandudno this project will also provide a boost to the local economy as local employment will be used in the refurbishment of the station.”

Conwy County Borough Council cabinet member, Councillor Philip Evans, said “I’m very pleased to see work start on site and these long-standing plans becoming a reality. Once these improvements are complete, the railway station will be a great asset to Llandudno – creating an excellent first impression of the town for visitors.”
