2. Notes the economic, regeneration and integrated transport potential of re-opening disused railway lines and tunnels across Wales.

3. Recognises the practical and financial challenges of bringing such infrastructure back into use.

4. Calls upon the Welsh Government to seek ownership of such infrastructure which would aid funding opportunities to be sought.

5. Calls on the UK and Welsh Governments to play its part in exploring the practical opportunities for re-opening such infrastructure across Wales.
