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.
