P-05-957 “Next Stop St Clears” - Support the bid for a railway station in St Clears

This petition was submitted by St Clears Town Council having collected 562 signatures online and 701 on paper, a total of 1,263 signatures.


Text of Petition                      

We the undersigned call on the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to recommend St Clears to Network Rail as a location for a new railway station in Wales. St Clears and the surrounding communities will benefit greatly from reopening the railway station, closing the gap in the West Wales line and enabling more people to use the train. We believe a station in St Clears would bring many benefits including social inclusion, reducing carbon footprint and increased tourism in the area.
