I may be reading too much into this but the talk in the council's development plan of a 'high line style attraction' suggests to me that the current bay rail link will become a linear park with a replacement tram service runninng down Lloyd George Avenue.

That sounds like a great idea! you may be on to something there as I wonder where else that high line style attraction could be?

Where would it start though? You couldn't just start walking from Queen Street station. Great idea, I just can't picture the starting point.

My initial thought for a linear park was on top of the docks by Techniquest. Very narrow pieces of land that go nowhere.

There's a great opportunity here to build a state of the art arena with a direct train / tram access. I'd like to see county hall demolished to make way for a mix of new residential flats, restaurants, hotel and a new location for the Odeon, Hollywood bowl, the casino. Essentially moving red dragon across.

Then Red Dragon to be demolished to build the arena and a 2,000 space multistorey car park. A tram down Lloyd George Avenue could even go straight into the venue. They could even configure the train to do the same.


I like the ideas mentioned here I thought that putting the arena on the site of county hall might be a bit too close to all the residential areas, so this makes sense.
