Radyr Station

Radyr station is a junction station on the Cardiff Valley Lines.

These pictures show the station.

It certainly has a massive modern step-free bridge.

This Google Map shows the station.

Note.

  • The platforms are long.
  • South of the station, the tracks split into two, with the City Line going in a more Southerly direction.

Currently services at the station are as follows in trains per hour (tph).

  • Two tph North to Aberdare
  • Two tph North to Merthyr Tydfil
  • Two tph North to Treherbert
  • Six tph South to Cardiff Queen Street and Cardiff Central stations via Cathays.
  • Two tph between Radyr and Coryton stations via the City Line, and Cardiff Central and Cardiff Queen Street stations.

In 2023 the service will be upgraded.

  • Four tph North to Aberdare
  • Four tph North to Merthyr Tydfil
  • Four tph North to Treherbert
  • Six tph South to Cardiff Queen Street and The Flourish stations via Cathays.
  • Two tph South to Cardiff Queen Street and The Cardiff Central stations via Cathays and back via the City Line.
  • Two tph South to Cardiff Queen Street and The Cardiff Central stations via the City Line and back via Cathays.
  • Two tph South to Cardiff Queen Street via Cathays.

All services will be run by new Stadler Citylink Metro Vehicles.

Note.

  1. No services will start at Radyr station.
  2. No station will get a less frequent service.
  3. There will be a doubling of services through Radyr station.
  4. There will be level access between platform and vehicles at all stations.
  5. If required the new vehicles can run in pairs to increase capacity.

I also suspect this is only the start and that capacity will be increased on some lines.
