Transport for Wales reaches a key milestone today with the opening of the South Wales Metro Infrastructure Hub.
As the new hub from which TfW will deliver the next phase of the transformation of the valley railway lines for the South Wales Metro, the facility at Treforest includes distribution facilities and management offices.
This phase of The South Wales Metro project has been part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through Welsh Government, the Cardiff Capital Region, the UK Department for Transport.
The Metro Infrastructure Hub will play a fundamental role in the delivery and future maintenance of the Metro. Primarily, for the first five years the hub will be used as a material distribution centre and after the first phase of transformation will evolve into a maintenance depot until the end of the current rail service contract .
The project management offices will be home to over 200 employees, creating a centralised location for Metro work over the next few years.
