Plans for a railway station to the east of Cardiff will go before Cardiff City Council next spring and is intended to be ready by 2023. Read the full story here:

It seems that all involved are pretending that global warming doesn't exist; the area is only just above the current sea level.

But behind sea defences.

Surely, but can they cope with anything more than normal spring tides, plus some sort of safety margin? I don't know, but would doubt it, somehow, in which case it wouldn't take too much of a rise in sea level to flood the area permanently.

I think you're catastrophising now, Noel.

As far as I'm aware, the sea defences have stood firm ever since the flood of 1607.

Of more immediate significance is the fact that finally, if you live in the east of Cardiff, you'll be able to get into the city centre in about 7 minutes rather than the 40 minutes it takes on the bus. Something worth celebrating, don't you think?
