The station will boast a brand new station building and a new car park that will also be equipped with disabled access. We’ve also resurfaced the platform and moved 150 metres of track towards the station to allow passengers to hop on and off trains safely.
New ways of working
Mark Langman, our route managing director Wales said: “This £450,000 scheme has been made possible because of a successful partnership between local government and the railway industry. It is driven by a shared vision and Network Rail’s devolved strategy that has enabled this scheme to be delivered affordably and in less than half a year. This is great testimony to how new thinking and new ways of working in the rail industry and with government and other stakeholders could continue to help the railway grow and become even more responsive to the needs of passengers.”
Fishguard and Goodwick station is linked on the main bus route and is easily accessible from both Goodwick and Fishguard town centres making it a potential gateway, especially for tourists visiting Pembrokeshire.
