Commission proposes new stations for South Wales network of alternatives

Six new railway stations on the South Wales Mainline headline a package of measures recommended in a report established to reduce M4 congestion without constructing a relief road. The existing railway lines between Cardiff and the Severn Tunnel would be reconfigured to enable the provision of a frequent local service.

New stations were proposed at Newport Road (Cardiff), Cardiff Parkway (St Mellons), Newport West, Newport East (Somerton), Llanwern and Magor.

Further recommendations included:

Delivering the Abertillery branch off the Ebbw Vale line

Adding two railway stations at Caerleon and Maesglas
