Following a whopping 127% increase in the number of people using trains in town, plans are being developed for a potential new railway station for the town.

The staggering growth in local people using trains has come following the introduction of the near-hourly service on the Shrewsbury-Aberystwyth line.

Negotiations have apparently been held between town officials, Network Rail and the Welsh Government who have agreed to take the first tentative steps towards a new development.

“A proposal will be submitted to the stakeholders by the end of January so we’ll see where this takes us,” said a spokesperson at on the Town Council.

The topic will be discussed at the town council’s Planning, Development and Environment Committee meeting tonight (Wednesday).
