“The decision to invest over £2.5m in Rhyl’s Railway Station is a welcomed one.
“Having campaigned for extra investment in the station for some time I’m really pleased the hard work has paid off.
“Not only will the new look station have new toilets, waiting shelters and a customer information point but the work will also make the station easy access for the many elderly and disabled users who have struggled getting to the platforms.
