Who would that serve from that location?


Not much other than the waste incinerator, a scrapyard and industrial units at the moment although Bad Wolf studios is nearby. There is a lot of land around there that has development potential though. ABP must have it’s eye on developing the perimeter of Roath Dock. I’m pretty sure the land just south east of queens gate roundabout is already for sale.

The ‘Tremorfa’ station appears to be located at Splott Park so would effectively serve both districts.

This sounds like using the Metro station to encourage development of a largely derelict area. 'Transport led development'
Build it and they will come.

Planning application submitted for new Butetown station and upgraded Cardiff Bay station as part of Metro plans.

https://planningonline.cardiff.gov.uk/o ... APR_139728

Interestingly the application includes a route map which also shows extension of Aberdare line to Hirwaun and Hirwaun Energy Park; and also extension of Coryton line to Velindre Hospital and M4 J33.

Disappointingly the plans for Cardiff Bay only include station signage in English. They did this at Cardiff Queen Street and had to change following complaints. You would have thought they would have learned their lesson by now!!
