screen-shot-2016-09-08-at-10-46-54WALES has its first full time Traffic Commissioner, after Economy and Infrastructure Secretary, Ken Skates, confirmed Welsh Government funding for the post this week. 

The Economy Secretary said: “Since my appointment as Cabinet Secretary, it’s been clear in my discussions with local authorities, the Confederation of Passenger Transport and others that there was a real appetite for increased capacity for the Traffic Commissioner for Wales.

“I’m delighted that we’ve been able to move quickly to make this a reality. Having a full time Commissioner based in Wales and, in due course, bilingual support staff also based in Wales, as opposed to Birmingham, means increased and more effective engagement with those who provide and maintain our transport networks here in Wales.”
