Drop-in session for Pontypool railway station

The council, with the support of Welsh Government, has engaged with Network Rail and Arriva, and commissioned consultants to design a scheme to improve the station for the benefit of passengers.

Plans include a park and ride facility with direct access off the A4042, lifts and an overbridge, a new waiting shelter, improved footways and more space for cycles and motorcycles. Landscaped green space would also be created around the site.

The works are currently at the design stage and once final plans have been agreed the council will seek further funding opportunities from Welsh Government to deliver the scheme.
