Merthyr on Track for Greater Connectivity


The Metro Plus project for the Merthyr Tydfil Rail Interchange is part of the wider strategic site development within  the Councils town centre masterplan. The building of a new railway station for Merthyr Tydfil is a key strategic aspiration of Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council and work has begun to deliver this vital new infrastructure. The project will increase Merthyr’s connectivity and accessibility, and link to the Core Valley Lines network, offering a major expansion in sustainable transport modes.

To find out more  about the vision and plans we spoke to Alun Evans, Strategic Infrastructure Programme Manager.


“As part of the South Wales Metro Project, the Merthyr Tydfil Interchange Project looks to create a fit for purpose, modern, high quality gateway station to the town and the wider Borough. It’s a key aspiration of the new emerging town centre masterplan and will provide a significant regeneration opportunity within the Borough, increasing connectivity and accessibility to the wider region.”
