The Business Plan Sub-Committee (minus Steve who was ill) met with Ryland Jones of Sustrans Cymru today at their office in Cardiff Bay. The aim of the meeting was to review what needs to go into the business plan that will be presented to the Welsh Government along with the detailed examination report on the condition of the tunnel.
Ryland gave us some very helpful suggestions on what the Welsh Govt. might expect to find in that report. Sustrans also have a research group and the RTS is likely to commission some work from them for the report on the economic impact of a re-opened tunnel. A very helpful meeting, but lots of work ahead for the business plan team.
