Vale Of Glamorgan MP Visits Soon-To-Be Upgraded Stations

Published on : Thursday, February 7, 2019

Network RailVale of Glamorgan MP, Alun Cairns, met with Network Rail representatives to find out more about the accessibility upgrades planned for Barry and Cadoxton stations.

 

 

Access improvements are currently being designed for both stations and will be delivered through UK Government’s ‘Access for All’ funding with match-funding from Welsh Government. Once designs have been completed, work is expected to begin at Cadoxton Station in Summer 2019, and at Barry station in 2020.

 

 

Dale Crutcher, senior commercial scheme sponsor for Network Rail Wales and Borders, said: “Improving access at stations will make a real difference to passengers by making it easier for people to get to work, or travel to see friends and family.

 

 

“We are delivering record levels of investment over the next five years to cater for increasing demand and to transform the railway in Wales.”

 

 

Alun Cairns MP said: “I’m really pleased to see funding from the UK Government being allocated locally, so that much needed improvements to accessibility can be carried out at Cadoxton and Barry train stations. The regeneration of Barry as a whole is one of my biggest priorities and attracting investment is a key part of that. The station upgrades add to this and helps to make Barry a better place to live and work.”

 

 

The funding for these schemes was allocated at the beginning of Network Rail’s current control period (2014-2019). The UK Government has allocated a further £300m funding to continue with the Access for All Programme in Control Period 6 (2019-2024).
