Merthyr Bus Station

Brief overview of the Project

Merthyr Bus Station is a new transport hub in the heart of Merthyr Tydfil, a perfect location for the newest additional to South Wales transportation network. Located next to the River Taff and just a 5 min walk from the Cyfarthfa Castle.

The £11m Interchange is new, modern and unique – represented in its eye catching roof structure modelled after the Brecon Beacons, and its provision of on-site electrical bus charging to allow the building to be future proofed for the needs of a rapidly updating and environmental conscious community.

  • Full internal and external Lighting system including automatic controls
