A COUNCILLOR has expressed double delight after the future of bus services in a Wrexham ward were saved.

Paul Rogers, Brymbo councillor, has led a campaign to save bus services linking Brymbo and the neighbouring villages Tanyfron and Lodge with Wrexham.

Arriva Buses Wales last week confirmed the number 14 service through the villages would continue without subsidy.

Now the community council has been told further services – including the Brymbo evening service and Sunday service – journeys have also been saved.

Council officers have advised Cllr Rogers the service will continue in 2014-15 having had confirmation of a grant from the Welsh Government.

Speaking about the decision, Cllr Rogers said: “I’m obviously delighted that officers have confirmed the intention to continue evening and Sunday services to Brymbo.

“This will hopefully end what has been a very worrying time for many residents relying on these vital services.

“There are a lot of residents in the area that depend upon them for work, to visit relatives in hospital and for many elderly people it is their only means of getting out and staying active.

“I am sure residents will be delighted.”

A petition signed by hundreds of bus users in the region against cuts to bus services was presented to the council as part of the budget consultation.

The Welsh Government has recently reviewed arrangements for bus service subsidies and further changes are likely to be made next year affecting more services.
