Proposed Cardiff Capital Region Metro Network

The Cardiff Capital Region Metro project is a key integrated transport and economic development initiative being developed by the Welsh Government in collaboration with the region's local planning and transportation authorities, including Rhondda Cynon Taf Council.

As part of the Metro project, a study is being commissioned to explore the options for developing a rapid transit corridor that will link the rapidly expanding communities of South East Rhondda Cynon Taf (such as Talbot Green and Llantrisant) with the centre of Cardiff. Under its terms of reference, this study will examine the operational and technical feasibility of reinstating a passenger rail service along the disused line between Pontyclun and Beddau as well as the construction of a light rail (tram) route using an alternative alignment through North West Cardiff.


For further information about this study, please contact the Transportation Strategy Team.
