Plans approved for new Porthcawl Metrolink bus station

The Porthcawl Terminus, designed by Austin-Smith:Lord, forms part of the metro enhancement framework for the Cardiff Capital Region City Deal, which is seeking to develop improved links between Maesteg, Bridgend, Porthcawl and Cardiff as part of a pipeline of future transport projects.

Plans for a Metro-link development have been accepted as part of the ongoing development in Porthcawl.

The Metrolink – which will form part of the South Wales Metro, was recently included as part of the council’s new vision for the Salt Lake regeneration site. The proposed bus terminus put forward by Bridgend Borough Council will be built along The Portway, Porthcawl, next to Salt Lake car park.

The building will have 4 bays and a fully enclosed canopy and concourse – space for a small kiosk and various environmental enhancements including a green roof, rain garden and outdoor seating areas. The plans also include space for a future cycle hire facility.
