Construction Starts on TfW Metro Control Centre and Depot

The new Taff’s Well depot will be the base for around 400 train crew, 35 train maintenance staff and 52 control centre staff.

[Ken Skates, Minister for Economy and Transport, said:” text=”This is yet another major development in Transport for Wales’ plans to deliver the South Wales Metro for the people of South East Wales.  At the start of this month we opened the Treforest Metro Infrastructure Hub, further up the valley, which will be the heart of transformation works and here today, we mark the start of the building of a new depot, from which the Metro will be operated.

The South Wales Metro is an investment of three quarters of a billion pounds and this £100 million depot is a major part of that.  It will act as a home for our brand-new Metro Vehicles, where servicing and maintenance will take place and the control centre will oversee running operations.

Transport is being transformed in Wales and it’s great to see more real examples of progress.”]

Transport for Wales says it will host a community event in March to allow local residents to learn more about the project and meet the delivery team.
