Llanwern railway station is a former station serving Llanwern on the east side of the city of Newport. It was opened with the South Wales Railway in 1850 and closed to passengers on 12 September 1960 in preparation for the building of Llanwern steelworks. It was closed completely on 16 April 1961.[1] The Newport City Council unitary development plan and Sewta rail strategy plan for the station to be re-opened at the same time as the main line is re-signalled by 2012.[2]
