I do agree, but we have demolished a car park North of the train station, and will be demolishing another on the south. The biggest train station in Wales and the 10th busiest (ish) outside of London needs a car park.


Train stations in big city centres are not suitable for park and ride. In any case the car park is due to have around double the amount of spaces we had in the area before.

That's was before any significant development was built on either the north or south side of the train station. Both are the biggest regeneration schemes we've seen in Wales.

I'm not sure how you've reached that conclusion. The new car park will have 695 spaces, considerably fewer than Wood Street (508 spaces) and Central Station (426 spaces) combined.
