Partial wheelchair access. Cardiff bound platform accessed only via long ramp steeper than 1:12 and customers have to cross a busy road twice from car park. The pavement leading directly to the ramp is very narrow and dangerous and is on a busy road. Caerphilly-bound platform accessed by shorter steep ramps from the car park but it has been assessed that wheelchair users can get to the platform unaided.
