Aberystwyth station

We improved Aberystwyth station as part of an ERDF funded programme.


Project status: completed
End date: April 2015
Cost: £3.1m

What we did

We made improvements to the station, including:
  • creating space for a retail unit in the station forecourt
  • a larger waiting room
  • new toilets for customers
  • improved step-free access to the platform area
  • a new canopy from the side entrance to street front
  • improved availability of customer information
  • improved CCTV.

Why we are doing it

While we are funded through the UK government’s National Station Improvement Project to improve stations, this is at a low level. We wanted to bring forward the improvement of various stations and received ERDF funding to do this. ERDF funding has provided £16m towards the £22m project to improve Aberystwyth, Ystrad Mynach, Port Talbot, Pontypridd and Rhyl stations.
