Possibly the problem with this project is a combination of the chaotic Network Rail and their constant management changes and the fact that Llandudno is in North Wales with the attendant Welsh Government involvement - or lack of. The Prestatyn station scheme was funded directly by DfT in London and seems to be almost complete.  Perhaps we should ask for public transport to be not a devolved function to the Assembly.

If Transport is devolved, how can Prestatyn Station have been funded directly by the DfT in London? It was a Network Rail funded project, I seem to remember.

But the situation with Llandudno Station has been ridiculous - Network Rail receives billions in subsidy every year - why does it need more financial assistance to do the job that it has already been given the funding to do?

Prestatyn station was done as part of the DfT's "Access for All" scheme.  Money went direct from DfT to NR for the work.  The point I was trying to make that there was no Welsh Government = or indeed local government - involvement. That model seems to work and deliver schemes on time with little fuss and cause for criticism.

 :'( I will e-mail Cll P Evans for a update. he will reply because that is the nature of the man and he may know and explain or pass the buck,but he should come to us his electrate and explain instead of sitting back all the time.All the Councillors look at this forum but very few take in what they read.

wrex, I think that comment is a tad unfair as Cllr P Evans is one of the most experienced town and county councillors we have.

We can certainly do with a lot more like him.

To be fair, the Councillors have no real power, they just nod their heads at whatever the council officers tell them.

Wrex, to be fair, i don't think it's within the power of one county councillor to put into effect a multi-million pound redevelopment package and ensure all the funding from umpteen different sources is all in place. I am sure Cllr. Evans would love to see it done more than anybody, knowing how much interest he has in public transport issues.

There's stuff in the minutes of the Town Council on this.  They have a Public Transport Committee which has the station on each agenda.  Dave is right - but it is the Councils themselves that have no real power over this as the bulk of funding is from other sources (WG, WEFO etc) and the place itself belongs to Network Rail who are the project manager. Ian makes a very valid point as there wouldn't be any discussion locally but for the Transport Committee chaired by Cllr Evans.
