Signs of our times

newly installed station sign at Fishguard and Goodwick

new day, new sign

There’s no mistaking today’s new sign in the Pembrokeshire sunshine: Abergwaun ac Wdig – Fishguard and Goodwick. A new station is about to open, and here’s where it is.

Today’s arrival is the latest in a series of new features on site – lighting posts, station information panel, and on the new station bus stops, bus timetables.

Last October, Fishguard Trains regular Swansea Jack recalled Jimmy Saville’s BR slogan, ‘We’re getting there!’ That seems a reasonable verdict on progress at our new station, which so far seems to exceed all our expectations.

Meanwhile, like Rhydgaled, we are suspending judgment on the new timetable for Fishguard and Goodwick, starting on May 14th. There are significant changes to the existing service which will ripple down the line far beyond Fishguard. Once we’ve seen the full timetable, we’ll be able to comment.

How about it then, Arriva? It’s only a month and a half until May 14th. Time to give us the times!
