Cardiff Parkway is a new railway station proposed within the Hendre Lakes development which is expected to welcome more than 800,000 passengers a year.

Connecting people, the region and the economy

Situated just seven minutes from Cardiff Central and Newport South Wales, the station promises to drastically cut journey times to both cities, as well as improve connectivity to other areas of the country and the wider UK.

Access for local people

Neighbouring communities will be connected to the development and the railway station by new cycle paths and walking routes. Bus facilities will make it easier for local services to call at the station and there will be parking and drop-off facilities.

A sustainable transport hub

By providing better public transport and a new station with parking, we plan to make it as convenient as possible for people to park their cars and switch to a train. We hope that it will also help ease congestion when major events are taking place in central Cardiff, such as rugby matches.

Although the project is at an early stage, Cardiff Parkway aspires to bring a range of long-term benefits to the local area and wider region, including:

Bringing new businesses and investment into South Wales
Allowing people to access new job opportunities both on site and elsewhere
Connecting people to other areas of Wales and the UK
Encouraging people throughout South Wales to travel more sustainably
