Future aspirations for Cardiff Central to Newport Road

Consultation has concluded


A new public transport link from Cardiff Central to Newport Road via the Bay has long been an ambition of both Transport for Wales (TfW), the Welsh Government and Cardiff Council.

Transport for Wales is exploring potential options for a new public transport link between Cardiff Central and Newport Road, via the Cardiff Bay line and Porth Teigr. This would be a future stage of improvements following the completion of the Butetown station and the planned upgrades to the Cardiff Bay line and Cardiff Bay station and would be subject to securing funding.

A seven-week consultation will be launched and the public and stakeholders invited to take part. Corridor options will be presented to the public and wider feedback obtained. The findings from the consultation will inform the outline business case for a potential future line extension from Cardiff Central to Newport Road, so that we can start preparing a proposal.

Following the findings report from the consultation, we’ll look to reduce the number of route options to one, with a view to proceed with planning, subject to funding being secured.

You can learn more about the project by joining us for workshops and drop-in sessions. To find out how you can get involved, visit tfw.wales/engagement.

I don't think any of the options apart form the priority bus route benefit those living on Moorland Road and Skelmuir Road. This would take away our privacy, disturb wild lile that lives there, cause more pollution and would have a direct impact on those living in the above streets. Cardiff is a compact city, and easy to get around, seems pointless and distruptive

Option 4 is my preferred solution. Think about Ultra Light Rail as per Coventry

Given the amount of noise disruption caused by the electrification works in this area, I am concerned that we will suffer yet more. Many people next to the train line suffered damage to their houses, cracks appearing in walls and ceilings. There seems to be no real indication where the new station will be - is it by the Aldi/old Argos site? If so, where will cars park and how will exiting traffic be managed?

I love this idea. Splott has been so disconnected from rail despite existing infrastructure. I think some residents may be upset about noise but we get noise from the existing line anyway so may as well have more community transport options out of it!
