BARRY TOWN STATION: The old bay platform
is being brought back into use to deliver additional capacity at the station.
The key challenge for the pounds 1.6 million scheme was to construct the new bay platform
in a severely congested site amidst high volumes of passenger and train movements.
1 Four newplatforms will be built at Cardiff Queen Street and a new Bay platform
for use by the Cardiff Bay shuttle
There would then be no requirement for a bay platform
at Coventry and maybe some joined-up thinking.
It is I policy to provide a friction or fixed buffer stops at the termination of every passenger running line, including bay platform
lines and on freight lines and sidings where deemed necessary.
It was originally planned that the new stations would open at the same time as a new bay platform
at Coventry Station and track and signalling changes that would allow two trains an hour to run between Coventry and Nuneaton.
