So with the BBC - HMRC and occupants of No2 Central Sq. in 2019 we could have at least 5,000 more people on a daily basis travelling to and from central square. As Zach illustrated very many of these workers are at the moment travelling by car to Llanishen and Llandaff. Can we assume that someone somewhere is aware of the mayhem we can expect! conversations about transport issues continue but actions are thin on the ground. I know a meeting about the new bus station happened last night so maybe we'll know more very soon but in layman terms... get a f****** move on!!!!

Well all that's definite so far is 5 reconditioned 40 year old Thameslink 4 carriage trains are coming to Arriva next Spring, and they're partially to replace Sprinters that are being taken out of service to be modified for disability access.

I can't see things going well when trains are already leaving people at stations because they can't cram them in. Someone needs to take the reins on this transport debacle.

EDIT: I mistakenly wrote NEW trains! :roll:
