South Wales trains affected by Cardiff engineering works

Cardiff Central station

Trains around South Wales will be affected by engineering works in Cardiff this weekend.

There will be no trains between Cardiff Central and Cardiff Queen Street, Wales' two busiest stations, and work may go on until early Monday morning.

Network Rail will be replacing track on Cardiff Central's platforms four and six as part of work to upgrade the signalling system.

Programme manager Neil Workman said it was the "final piece" of the work.

A number of routes in south Wales will be affected over the weekend, including:

  • No trains between Cardiff Central and Penarth
  • No trains between Radyr and Cardiff Central
  • Trains between Rhymney and Cardiff Central will be diverted to Cardiff Bay until 12:00 BST on Sunday
  • No trains on the line between Cardiff Central and Bridgend via Rhoose on Sunday

Arriva Trains Wales has advised customers to check its website before they travel in, out and around the Welsh capital this weekend as replacement bus services are in operation.
