Network Rail has thanked the local community of Cadoxton for their patience, as the project to improve access at the station has reached a major milestone.
Over four weekends in August and September, engineers and NR contractor, Alun Griffiths, worked around the clock to successfully lift the new footbridge, lift towers and support columns into position at Cadoxton station.
Further night-time and weekend work is expected to take place until mid-November.
The work is part of the £3 million ‘Access for All’ project, funded by the Department for Transport, with match funding from Welsh Government.
What did the officials say?
Rhys Howells, scheme project manager at Network Rail said:
“We would like to thank passengers and the local community for their patience throughout these essential works.
“Once complete, the new footbridge and lifts will benefit those with reduced mobility as well as passengers with children, heavy luggage or shopping.”
James Price, CEO at Transport for Wales said:
“It’s great to see work progressing through the ‘Access for All’ programme. In addition to this, Transport for Wales are investing £194 million in station improvements throughout our Wales and Borders network, including the building of at least five new stations. We will spend £15 million on making our stations more accessible, which will further improve the customer experience and help us create a transport network that people can be proud of.”
