Step-free access available at Cadoxton station for the first time

 

For the first time, passengers will have step-free access at Cadoxton Station in Barry, following a £3 million investment.

Work began back in May 2019 to improve access, as part of the Department for Transport and Welsh Government funded Access for All scheme.

This £3m investment from the Department for Transport and Welsh Government included the installation of a new stepped-footbridge with two lifts, which provides a fully accessible route from the station entrance to platform two (for Barry-bound trains) for the first time, allowing all users to make full use of the station.

Step-free access will not only benefits those with reduced mobility, but also people with children, heavy luggage or shopping.

The work was undertaken by Alun Griffiths contractors and supported by franchise operator Transport for Wales.
