Temporary removal of step free access

From Monday 25th April, the Platform 1 footbridge will be removed to allow for the new bus and rail interchange work.

Step free access between platforms and the Syphon Street car park will not be available during the work. 

Please use the accessible diversion which is approximately 0.3 miles. 

Alternatively, travel to either Pontypridd or Dinas Rhondda station, where step free access is available. 

The work will take approximately 12 months to complete and will include a new accessible lift.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
