product-fullturn Pontypool and New Inn railway station to undergo massive £500,000 refurbishmentA Torfaen train station will undergo a massive £500,000 refurbishment programme that will involve carrying out an upgrade of the facilities, improving the park and ride, bus interchange and active travel route provisions.

Five other transport schemes in the borough will receive financial backing from the Welsh Government, totalling close to £1.2million in transport infrastructure.

A spokeswoman for Torfaen council said: “The funding for the Pontypool and New Inn Station includes an anticipated increase of 12 spaces and resurfacing of the car park.

“There will also be a provision of cycle and motorcycle parking, improvements to the access road including for pedestrians and some improvements to the station canopies.

“We have a preliminary design, but detailed design will likely take place over the next six months or so,” she added.

The station is located on the line operated by Arriva Trains Wales, but suffered for a number of years with declining passenger numbers.

However, Pontypool and New Inn catered for an estimated 58,504 passengers last year, in statistics provided by the Office of Rail and Road – an increase by 404 service users.
