Transport for Wales – Core Valley Lines

Transport for Wales (TfW) has been established by the Welsh Government to drive forward the Welsh Government’s vision of a high quality, safe, integrated, affordable and accessible transport network that the people of Wales are proud of. TfW is key to delivering the Welsh Government’s key themes as set out in Prosperity for All: The National Strategy.

The Core Valley Lines (CVL) programme of works forms a significant part of the South Wales Metro project with a £738m transformation budget (including £136m contribution from the European Regional Development Fund) covering a broad spectrum of rail type works, to both improve and renew existing assets. 

Amey Infrastructure Wales, as the CVL Infrastructure Manager, will be responsible for management of the design, development and delivery of the investment to transform the CVL, which will include but is not limited to:
 - Provision of a new rail depot at Taffs Well to stable & service train and operate the network.

 - Refurbishment of stations to enhance passenger experience.

 - Extension of stations by creating new platforms.

 - Electrification of a significant amount of the rail network to reduce travel time and allow use of new metro carriages.

 - Renew / upgrade tracks as required.

TfW have a vision of creating a lasting legacy in Wales and therefore a proportion of the works will be competitively tendered and awarded to both large companies and small or medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Where works are not to be self-delivered by the Infrastructure Manager or our Infrastructure Delivery Partners (IDP’s), they will assist TfW in undertaking supply chain engagement and procuring suppliers to deliver robust and fair supplier agreements that reflect TfW values, with resultant contracts entered into between TfW and the supplier.
