Barry Docks Transport Interchange
Construction on Phase One of the new multi modal transport interchange, located south of the train station at the Barry Dock Office, is due to commence on 9th January 2023.
The Barry Docks Transport Interchange, which will adjoin the Grade II listed building, will provide a multi modal transport interchange, enhancing station access and facilities to accommodate increasing numbers of people using more frequent and larger trains, which are planned to stop at Barry Docks Station from 2025 onwards.
Working in conjunction with the Cardiff Capital Region and Welsh Government the Council will be delivering:
A transport interchange that incorporates all modes of public transport;
An enhanced Park and Ride facility;
An improved transport connection which will support Welsh Governments Transport strategy - Llwybr Newydd: the Wales transport strategy 2021;
Support to the economic development of both Barry and the wider Cardiff City region, assisting those seeking to access employment or education opportunities;
Electric vehicle charging infrastructure will be provided in car park areas that can be used by both station users or local residents;
Additional cycle parking (Sheffield stands and cycle lockers) will be provided for those who wish to access the interchange by bicycle;
The potential to accommodate a small number of business, retail and/or community hubs in its central area in the future;
Potential to accommodate an OVObike hire dock.
In consultation with a wide range of stakeholders including local businesses, service providers and community organisations, options for establishing a transport interchange at Barry Docks were explored.
A Bus/Taxi Interchange to be located south of the Station on part of the Docks Office Car Park (phase one) with potential for an additional Park & Ride Car Park, accessed from Dock View Road, to be located north of the Station platform, with Residential and possibly Commercial Uses to be located north west of station (phase two) was the preferred option.
Construction is due to begin on phase one January 2023 and is planned to be complete by May 2023. If there are any issues during construction, you can contact the contractor: Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK, Ty Glyn, Canol y Dre, Ruthin, LL15 1QW - Tel: 01824 703661 / 07880 036811.
