Penarth/Cardiff Barrage Sustainable Transport Corridor Study

The Council has commissioned consultant’s Capita to undertake a WelTAG (Welsh Transport Planning and Appraisal Guidance) Stage One study to develop and appraise potential options for improving sustainable transport within and between Penarth and Cardiff barrage.

Cardiff Bay Barrage

The study will seek to explore a range of opportunities within the study area, specifically focussing on the potential to:

  • Increase the use of public transport
  • Encourage modal shift away from use of the private cars  
  • Reduce road traffic congestion and support increased economic activity
  • Increase both accessibility and connectivity
  • Increase levels of active travel in support of associated health benefits
  • Create infrastructure which supports tourism investment


To help support and inform the Stage One appraisal, we would welcome your views on how best these aims could be achieved including consideration of perceived problems, constraints and opportunities associated with travel in this area.
