Asda own the land. thats why you have Tiger bay store over the other side of the water. You can nearly throw a stone from 1 store to the other.

Do you mean the store on Ferry road? They aren't exactly a stones throw from each other.

I’m assuming this query is due to this weeks announcement regarding Cardiff City requesting planning permission for Academy in Llanrumney?
Have they? I know the council have plans to build new sporting facilities for the local football and rugby teams as part of the A48 access road project. Didn't know Cardiff City fc were involved.

would be interested to know what land in Asda Lear Leckwith has any relevance to aviation. I know this thread is called random stuff however this is something else.

Several airport forums on F4A have Random threads. The idea is that anything can be discussed as long as it's not illegal or against forum rules, usually pertaining to the wider area covered by the airport in question; in CWL's case that's anything relating to Wales. For example, a regular topic in the CWL Random thread is the question of independence for Wales.

Local aviation topics can normally find a home in one of the aviation threads within a particular airport forum, although sometimes aviation-related themes do find their way into a Random thread.

The South East Wales Transport Commission has released it's findings for alternatives to the M4 relief road. The recommendations are for a cohesive railway, bus and cycle system would cost between £590million and £840million to create - including six train stations and an overhaul of other public transport systems.
"The recommendations include:

  • Increasing the number of stations between Cardiff and the River Severn from three to nine. Rail stations have been recommended at Newport Road, Cardiff Parkway, Newport West, Newport East, Llanwern and Magor.
  • Creating new rapid bus and commuter cycle corridors across Cardiff and Newport. These would run parallel to the new proposed railway stations which follow the M4.
  • Creating a network of bus and cycle corridors within Newport
  • Making a ticket system across all services using a "cross-city zonal fare system"
  • Creating a cycle hire scheme
  • Co-ordinating bus and rail timetables, with services running every 15 minutes. Train service frequencies should be "at least" four trains per hour wherever reasonable.
  • Making sure transport fares are "affordable for all"
The commission also says while it accepts there is "capacity restraints" in the Severn tunnels, it supports Welsh Government proposals for additional London and Bristol Temple Meads trail services to Cardiff, Swansea and west Wales.

A number of upgrades have been recommended away from the main railway line. The commission recommends upgrades to:

  • The Maesteg line - particularly the reinstatement of the Garw loop, to allow two trains per hour along the line
  • Completing the Ebbw Vale Line - including the branch to a new station at Abertillery, as already proposed
    by Welsh Government, to allow for four trains per hour and to provide services directly to Newport
  • Upgrades to the Bridgend station - to allow increased capacity for terminating services from east of Cardiff
  • Changes to Newport station - to improve capacity and journey times. The commission says there is a "particular opportunity to upgrade platform one, as this could allow for ‘cheek to cheek’ interchange with bus services."
