Phase 1 works for the Canal Quarter will begin to release Churchill Way from a purely ‘transport infrastructure role’, enabling the dock feeder canal to be exposed and for the urban environment around the canal to be transformed.

Reinstating the canal will enable the greening of Churchill Way, which will have a significant beneficial impact on footfall and commercial activity at the eastern end of Queen Street.


Transforming Churchill Way could stimulate demand for new occupiers within the street, which could promote adaptation, enhancement and alteration of the buildings along the street for the wider benefit of the City Centre.

New amphitheatre-style seating, trees and green planting will be installed, with footbridges built across the canal so that people can get from one side of Churchill Way to the other. A new water feature is also being proposed for the site, as well as a pergola-covered alfresco dining area, and a stage for events and performances.

The main areas of work that will be undertaken within this section of works will include:

  • The uncovering of the dock feeder canal.

  • Introduction of new water features around the canal area.

  • Construction of two footbridges over the canal.

  • Construction of a cantilevered stage over the canal.

  • Construction of a cantilever stepped amphitheatre for watching live entertainment.

  • Bespoke rain gardens will be installed as part of the new urban drainage system.

  • Floating gardens will be installed in the canal area.

  • Raised planters to bring new greenery to the area and new seating areas will be installed.

  • A green living pergola will be installed to add interest and greenery to the area.

  • A new taxi rank and turning circle will be constructed to allow ease of access to the area.

  • New street lighting will be installed.

Station Terrace.jpg

Station Terrace is a primary gateway to the city centre being the home to Queen Street Station. Relocating bus stops to this location will establish it as a transport mode within the city.

Our works will enhance the quality and status of the public realm in this location and improve the overall ‘sense of arrival’ for the city. The utilisation of green infrastructure through soft and hard landscaping will improve aesthetics in the area  The introduction of SUDs and sustainable technologies will also reduce CO2 emissions. You can find out more about this on our SUDs page

This section of the scheme will introduce a new cycle lane along the length of Station Terrace connecting to the already established cycleway infrastructure on Newport Road. This will provide a vital active travel link in the city for cyclists.

The main areas of work which you will notice being undertaken in the area will include:

  • Construction of a two-way cycle lane separating cyclists from traffic through the construction of a splitter island to improve cyclist safety. This will also include telematics which will act as traffic lights for cyclists to help further improve road safety.

  • Construction of rain gardens outside Queen Street Station.

  • Construction of a new bus stop outside Queen Street Station.

  • Traffic flow within the area will be altered to enable all vehicles to travel Northbound down Station Terrace but Southbound will be restricted to public transport.

  • Alterations to pedestrian crossings will be completed.

  • New streetlighting.

Subtle changes to infrastructure will allow the adaption of Churchill Way to a Northbound one way street. These changes will support pedestrian safety, public transport infrastructure and the introduction of the cycle lane along Bridge Street.


The existing disabled parking will be maintained and accessed from the South end of Churchill Way provided through a new road layout. 

New pedestrian islands at the North and South end of Churchill Way will provide space for new bike stands and an E-Bike station.

The main areas of work which you will notice being undertaken in the area will include:

  • Removal of central splitter island.

  • Construction of new pedestrian islands at the North and south end of Churchill Way.

  • Re-alignment of disabled parking bays.

  • New streetlighting.

Bridge Street will also switch to a one way system eastbound. This will support the Cardiff Active Travel Plan.

Bridge street will feature a new two-way cycle way connecting St David Centre, Charles Street and David Street to the new cycleway infrastructure through Station Terrace.


This will include cycleway telematics and vehicle telematic upgrades at the junction of Churchill Way and Bridge Street which will allow safe crossover for cyclists and safer straight through crossing points for pedestrians.

The main areas of work which you will notice being undertaken in the area will include:

  • Construction of new two way cycle lane and cycle lane telematic infrastructure.

  • New splitter island to segregate the new cycle lane from vehicular traffic.

  • New Telematics.

  • Improved pedestrian crossings.

  • New Streetlighting.

To accommodate changes to road layout throughout other parts of the scheme, changes to the junction at Adam Street will allow traffic to turn right off Adam Street onto Churchill Way.


This will be achieved by removing and reducing the traffic island at the South end of Churchill Way and moving the existing pedestrian crossing North. 

The pedestrian crossing will also be altered to allow a straight through crossing, improving safety for pedestrians by removing the need to seek refuge within the central island.

The main areas of work which you will notice being undertaken in the area will include:

  • New right hand turning lane from Adam Street onto Churchill Way

  • Improved straight through pedestrian crossing point
