TfW delivers Welsh Government policies and we want to create a transport network of which the people of Wales are proud.
We’re a pan-Wales organisation and we apply our local understanding for the benefit of our customers. We opened our North Wales Business Unit in 2018.
Prosperity for All – the national strategy for Wales
We’re playing our part in delivering Prosperity for All – the national strategy for Wales and the Economic Action Plan.
|‘Public investment with a social purpose is also critical to our approach to rail and in line with our Economic Action Plan. We’re determined that our investment stimulates the Welsh economy, maximises opportunities for Welsh businesses, develops local skills and creates and supports as many local jobs as possible.’|

The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act
TfW’s activities also support the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act.
We appointed Infrastructure Development Partners to our Sustainable Transport Infrastructure Delivery Framework in 2018 to ensure more local suppliers benefit from our investments.
|‘The Well-being of Future Generations Act is at the heart of the rail franchise for Wales and the borders. I am encouraged by Transport for Wales’ plans to contribute to a prosperous Wales by giving work opportunities to small businesses, social enterprises, and to contribute to a resilient Wales by committing that all electricity for stations and overhead wires will come from zero carbon energy. In mapping contributions towards the seven well-being goals, I am pleased to see Transport for Wales present their commitment in an easily identifiable and transparent design.’|
