Improving access at Barry station

We are upgrading Barry station with a brand-new footbridge and lifts.

The improvements at Barry station are funded by the Department for Transport and Welsh Government through the Access for All programme.

The £3.3m project will mean platforms 2 and 3 at Barry will be fully accessible for the first time. Accessibility benefits everyone. It also promotes the use of the rail network and allows for fewer car journeys, less congestion and carbon emissions.

The work leads on from the recently completed Access for All scheme at  Cadoxton station and takes the network one step closer to a fully accessible line between Barry Island and Cardiff Central.

When will the work take place?

We set up our site compound in July 2021 and work has been ongoing since then.

During 2022, we will be installing: the new footbridge and lifts; new lighting; new telecoms systems; new CCTV; and upgrades to station facilities. We hope to complete the project by summer 2022. Throughout construction, the station will remain open to passengers.
