Work to begin on new Cardiff city centre bus station in late March

11 March 2019

  • Later this month, work is expected to start on a new bus station in the centre of Cardiff
  • It is a joint venture between property development firm Rightacres, the Welsh Government, and financial services organisation L&G
  • The bus station will have 14 stands at ground level and 5000 sq ft of retail space.

Once a final agreement has been confirmed between the organisations involved, construction is expected to start on the new bus station with immediate effect. The station will be located in front of Cardiff Central Railway Station.

Cardiff’s former central bus station closed in 2015. This was to make way for the next phase of development at Central Square, including the Central Square office scheme and new BBC Wales HQ.

The bus station and surrounding area will feature:

  • 14 stands at ground level with around 5,000 sq ft of retail space.
  • Above the bus station, around 87,000 sq ft of new grade A office space.
  • 300 private apartments for rent.
  • A new car park with spaces for 250 vehicles of which around 175 will be for staff at the new BBC Wales HQ.

The bus station will be operated by Transport for Wales, who took over rail services from Arriva Trains Wales in October 2018. The scheme is expected to take 2-2 ½ years to complete, however, the bus station could be operational prior to this.
