Porth is an important gateway to the South Wales Valleys, located within the Rhondda Valley, in the county borough of Rhondda Cynon Taf (RCT). Largely well-connected to Cardiff and Pontypridd, a dozen bus services link Porth with the Rhondda Valley, Caerphilly and Cardiff, but Porth has been severely disadvantaged traditionally by poor transport interchange facilities.
The Porth Transport Hub project is set to change all that. Using existing RCT land, we will be building an interchange that will see shared facilities between bus and rail – creating a seven bay interchange for buses that will be alongside the rail line.
To find out more about the vision and approach for the Port Transport Hub we caught up with Roger Waters – RCT Service Director for Frontline Services
“This will be a huge step forward in promoting public transport in the Rhondda, and is a corner stone for our Porth Regeneration Strategy.”
