Cardiff Parkway is a planned railway station in Cardiff. Cardiff Parkway Developments Ltd has applied for a station as part of the New Stations Fund 2. The station is to serve a new business park and would fit in with the proposed South Wales Metro. The new station is to be located south of the existing St Mellons Business Park in Cardiff, with the location of the station between Newport Road[2] and Newport stations.[3]

On 13 July 2017, it was announced that the station would be privately built rather than public and would not need the same system of approval than if it was publicly built.[4] On 19 July 2017, it was announced the station had received funding of £30 million and is due to open in February 2020.[5]

Early plans are to skew the two relief lines to the south to allow an island platform to be built in the middle of the four tracks, plus platforms on either side.[6] The station will initially be served by class 170 DMUs and eventually by brand new Stadler FLIRT DEMUs which will operate on the Maesteg South Wales Metro line.
