Welcoming the appointments, Transport for Wales’ interim chair Nick Gregg commented: “Transport for Wales has a crucial role to play in spearheading the long-term future vision for integrated transport in Wales. This vision is transformational and will have a significant impact on the people, communities and businesses of Wales. We now need to ensure that we continue to develop Transport for Wales as an expert organisation that can deliver this vision and keep Wales moving.

“I am extremely pleased to welcome Sarah, Nikki and Alison to the board as I’m confident that they will have a significant impact on Transport for Wales’ development.
