In June, Transport for Wales (TfW) announced a five-step improvement plan for rail services on the Wrexham to Bidston line in North Wales and the borders.

The five-step plan included improving the reliability of the new Class 230 trains through investment into the new depot at Birkenhead, improving customer service and information available during disruption and keeping all rail replacement to a minimum. 

James Price, Transport for Wales CEO, said: "We understand the frustrations of passengers using the Wrexham to Bidston line over the past few months. First, the line lost its train service due to a safety issue with engines on our trains and this resulted in replacement buses running.

"Following that, we introduced our refurbished Class 230 trains to the line and unfortunately, we’ve experienced teething problems and technical issues.

"I’ve visited the new depot in Birkenhead that will allow us to carry out maintenance on our Class 230s at a faster pace and have assured myself that we are doing everything possible to see an improvement in the service over the coming months."
