UK: Cardiff Central station expanded with new platform

01-ukNetwork Rail has officially opened a new platform at Cardiff Central station, designed to help ease congestion. The new platform 8, located above the modern south-side entrance building at the station, also includes a new waiting area and customer information desk and is all part of the £300m (345 million euros) Cardiff area signalling renewals project to modernise the Cardiff and Valleys network.
The track for Platform 8 together with the new signalling system will be bi-directional and will enable trains to depart westwards from Platforms 7 and 8 simultaneously, improving the operational capacity of the line.
The new platform will immediately ease congestion and gives the potential for more services to run in the Cardiff area.
