Cynon Valley - - YOUR NEWS -

AD­DI­TIONAL train ser­vices are now in op­er­a­tion be­tween Cardiff and Aber­dare, in­clud­ing sev­eral ser­vices that have been added on Sun­days.

Trans­port for Wales is­sued its new timetable changes this month and they are now in op­er­a­tion.

It brings some good news to train com­muters who, in some places, have seen much travel dis­rup­tion since the fran­chise took over.

But now ser­vices have been added be­tween Cardiff and Aber­dare and Cardiff and Merthyr Tyd­fil.

Other ser­vices have also been al­tered slightly so trav­ellers are ad­vised to check their jour­neys.

From Mon­day to Fri­day, ser­vices have been added at 5.51am from Aber­dare to Cardiff Cen­tral and at 6.08am from Merthyr Tyd­fil to Cardiff Cen­tral.

The new Sun­day ser­vices are 9.22am Aber­dare to Cardiff Cen­tral, 11.53am Aber­dare to Cardiff Cen­tral, 5.53pm Aber­dare to Cardiff Cen­tral and 7.53pm Aber­dare to Cardiff Cen­tral

And in the op­po­site di­rec­tion: 10.41am Cardiff Cen­tral to Aber­dare, 4.41pm Cardiff Cen­tral to Aber­dare and 6.41pm Cardiff Cen­tral to Aber­dare.

There have been a few al­ter­ations to lines in the Val­leys. The 6.31am Mon­day to Fri­day ser­vice that op­er­ates be­tween Cardiff Cen­tral and Taffs Well will now ter­mi­nate at Radyr.

The 6.53am Mon­day to Fri­day ser­vice that runs from Taffs Well to Co­ry­ton will now be­gin its jour­ney at Radyr at 7.04am.

The 6.08am Mon­day to Fri­day from Rhym­ney to Barry Is­land will now leave Rhym­ney at the slightly later time of 6.14am and will also end its jour­ney at Cardiff Cen­tral.

The 7.11am Mon­day to Fri­day ser­vice that runs from Cardiff to Aber­dare will now run to Radyr with­out stop­ping. This means it will not call at sta­tions in­clud­ing Cardiff Queen Street, Cathays and Llandaff.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the 6.42am Mon­day to Fri­day ser­vice from Cardiff Cen­tral to Pem­broke Dock will now de­part from Cardiff Cen­tral at 6.39am and op­er­ate ear­lier to Brid­gend.

The 7.45pm Chel­tenham Spa to Maesteg Satur­day ser­vice is no longer op­er­at­ing as a through ser­vice. In­stead com­muters will have to travel from Chel­tenham Spa to Cardiff Cen­tral and from Cardiff Cen­tral to Maesteg.

The 11.36am Sun­day ser­vice from Ch­ester to Manch­ester Pic­cadilly will now de­part from Llan­dudno Junc­tion at 10.26am and stop at all sta­tions on its jour­ney to Ch­ester.
