Date: 14/01/2018

Plans for a £180m Metro Central transport hub around Cardiff Central station have been unveiled. The existing station would be revamped and expanded to cope with the millions of new rail passengers projected over the next 25 years. The project would also involve new Metro and coach stations, in addition to the new bus station already planned. It would need Welsh and UK government funding, as well as the private sector to add to £40m from the city deal.
