Shotton railway station has been officialy opened after a 1m refit

Shotton railway station in Flintshire has been officially re-opened after a £1m upgrade.

Improvements include a new ticket office, waiting areas, paths and signage.

The work has been funded by the Welsh Assembly Government.

Other work, completed in two phases, includes resurfaced platforms, bicycle store and automated ticket vending machines.

The official opening on Friday included the launch of a new Plusbus Ticket which passengers can buy at a discounted price with their rail ticket for unlimited bus travel in the Deeside area.

Improvements have also been carried out in the vicinity of the station, such as an electronic information screen on the High Street giving bus and rail information.

Lord Barry Jones, former long serving local MP, performed the opening ceremony.

Funding was provided from WAG through Taith, the Regional Transport Consortium for North Wales.
