Work is steaming ahead on Llandaff North’s railway station
Work has started on the £2.5million improvement scheme at Llandaff station to make it accessible for everybody whether they are on foot, using wheelchairs or pushing children in buggies or prams.
The project includes the installation of a new stepped-footbridge with two lifts which will provide a fully accessible route for travellers to get to Platform 2 to catch Cardiff-bound trains. Network Rail hoped to finish work in the spring but, due to engineering difficulties, it is now expected to be completed towards the end of next summer.
The principal contractors working on site alongside Network Rail are Balfour Beatty. They say most of work will be carried out on weekdays and weekends but some night time working may be necessary.
Network Rail says the project involves the use of heavy machinery, generators and lighting. “For those living close to the railway, engineering work can be noisy – but we do our best to keep disruption to a minimum,” said a spokesperson.
