Bid for New Railway Station

A funding application has been submitted to the Department for Transport to build a new £7m railway station for Magor and Undy.  Two stations serving the villages closed in 1965 when the areas’ population was 500. It is now expected to rise to 10,000 in the next 10 years.  The application – for one new station – has been made by Monmouthshire council and the Magor Action Group on Rail and asks for £5.2m of funding, with the rest of the money anticipated to come from the Welsh Government.
