Short-changed on stations

Network Rail have today announced that they are going to spend £85m over the next five years on improvement works to more than 120 stations in Wales.

     £85m plan to revamp rail stations

Great news, it's badly needed. But look at the last paragraph of the story:

The firm has announced £3.25bn spending over five years on 2,000 stations across Britain.

Now do the maths. £85m is just 2.62% of the total investment. By share of population Wales should be getting 5% ... which would work out at just over £160m.

Where's the other £75m?
