The Transport Minister, Edwina Hart, has announced £12m funding for access improvements at five train stations across Wales including Radyr and Llandaff. The stations will receive the money as part of the Access for All programme to create step and obstacle-free routes to platforms and station entrances, through new foot bridges, lifts and ramps.
A £2.5m project at Llandaff station will involve the installation of a new stepped-footbridge with two lifts. This will provide a fully accessible route to platform two (for Cardiff-bound trains) for the first time. The project will also provide an accessible drop off point, disabled car park spaces, improved station signage and some new tactile paving. Work starts in May and is due to be completed by the end of 2014.
A £3m stepped-footbridge with three lifts will be installed at Radyr, in order to serve all three platforms. The project will provide a fully accessible route to the station and platforms for the first time. Work starts in June and should be completed by February 2015.
