Climate Change, Environment and Infrastructure Committee Consultation on review of priorities for the Sixth Senedd (2021-26)

Rail Freight Group (RFG) was pleased to respond to the Welsh Government’s Climate Change, Environment and Infrastructure Committee – contributing to its consultation on the review of its priorities for the remainder of the Sixth Senedd.

In its previous submission (September 2021), and in response to the consultation on what should be the Committee’s priorities for the full five years of the Sixth Senedd, RFG highlighted two themes it commended for inclusion in the Committee’s programme: that freight movements by road and by rail are essential for the Welsh economy and that modal switch to rail is a key contributor to freight decarbonisation. Also, rail freight movements should be planned alongside passenger services on the mixed-use rail network to ensure effective choices are made.
