Wales is providing real leadership on transport for their best of the UK. From pulling the plug on most of its road building programme to getting behind 20 mph zones. And from transforming the nation’s rail network to bringing its buses back under public control.

More to follow later but here is the Welsh Government statement on the franchising expert panel.
