What goodies do you think she got for that bit of PR?

Sure there are plans for a Metro line in the distant future but these developments are happening now. Unlesss there is some short-term mitigation (and it's difficult to imagine what that might be) it's going to be horrendous.


Are there? Where?

From memory going south to north, you have Redrow's ridiculously named Plasdŵr (a mistranslation of a mistranslation), Barret's 'Maes y Deri ' two un-named sites just north of Rhydlafar and another opposite the first turning to Creigiau.

I think he means where are the metro plans, They were recently published on the Transport for Wales website, hidden at the back of a document called SHRA. The plans for 'North West Corridor' are not yet finalised but include a LR 'tram' running on the old HR alignment from Fairwater on the City Line to Creigiau (scheme 238) and onwards to Llantrisant (scheme 229) with a few alternatives thrown in.

However these schemes are 'not finalised'
Build it and they will come.
Get it wrong and they will fall off.

Drive it several times a day (I live in Danescourt) the sheer scale of Plasdwr, Maes Y Deri (the Barratt site near Rhydlafar) and the Parish (near Creigiau) are just staggering. Keep meaning to try and get some photos but there are not many places to stop...
