Delayed Cardiff Bus Interchange opening set for spring
Cardiff Bus Interchange is set to open after a seven year delay, Transport for Wales (TfW) has confirmed.
The new station is due to open its doors in spring this year, according tot he transport authority.
The site was originally to open in 2017, but was delayed due to setbacks, a new masterplan and disruption due to Covid.
As well as 14 bus bays, the facility will have various retail units, public toilets and refreshment points. It is intended to help promote the use of public transport and enable seamless connections to and between different transport modes, including rail, walking and cycling. It has been designed to be light, airy and clean, equipped with the latest surveillance technology and security guards.
The fit out of Cardiff Bus Interchange is an £11m project funded by the Welsh government.
No coaches will be allowed to use the interchange, it is for bus use only. Coaches are advised to continue to use the current parking and drop-off/pick-up arrangements in the city.
TfW says it is exploring options on how coach accommodation in Cardiff may be improved in the future.
