Thousands of people live by our railways. Our work will impact the many people who use our services as well as the communities and the environment with which we share our lines. 

Whether we’re building the infrastructure to create Metro, or conducting the essential routine maintenance to keep our services running safely and smoothly, we’ll be carrying out our work with utmost care and consideration for the estimated 50,000 people who live within 200 metres of our lines. 

In March 2020, we took ownership of the Aberdare, Coryton, Merthyr Tydfil, Rhymney and Treherbert lines, as well as the City line between Cardiff and Radyr from Network Rail.

We want to be good neighbours and we’ll be working collaboratively with the people who are affected by our activities.

Our community engagement

We want to make sure that we listen to the needs and concerns of the communities and businesses affected by our work to build the South Wales Metro.

Our community engagement team is working hard to engage with these communities and businesses and you can read our communications below:
