Communities in Ceredigion are concerned about the lack of public transport provision available to access their coast path, claim Welsh Conservatives.
“With no regular bus service, many fear this is putting visitors off,” said Welsh Conservative Shadow Transport Minister, Natasha Asghar MS.
“Another corner of Wales is being let down by Labour’s pathetic provision of public transport. Our beautiful coast paths lie barren as residents remain immobile. Many tourists will steer clear of this magnificent corner of Wales due to its inaccessibility by public transport. For those who choose to drive, they will be forced to a standstill under Labour’s ludicrous blanket 20mph speed limit.”
She added, “The lack of coherent thinking by Labour is evident in their expenditure of £1.4 million annually on the Wales coast path, without considering any investments in improving access to it. One without the other is simply nonsensical.
“In Wales, we have grown accustomed to Labour’s illogical governance. They ban new roads but fail to provide viable alternatives like buses. Our transport infrastructure is crumbling, yet Labour seems more interested in bringing Wales to a halt rather than getting our economy moving.”
The coastal path is the longest continuous trail around Wales and some busier parts like Cardigan have a regular bus service but other sections are well off the regular bus routes and have no service to their hamlets and villages.
