• A grant towards a three-year study of passenger transport needs in Wales, sponsored by the Welsh Council, was announced last week by Mr Peter Thomas, Secretary of State for Wales. The project, costing an estimated £22,500, is designed to review and assess existing public transport facilities, and to indicate what developments should be foreseen in the future, having regard to likely levels of demand and financial support.
The first stage of the study, which will be under the direction of Professor Graham Rees of the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, will commence early in the new year, and consist of a pilot study of an area of the Principality, leading on to stage two—a detailed review of passenger transport services in North Wales.
All aspects of transport, including air and ports, will be covered by the review, the final stage of which will extend to the complex of services in South Wales.
