About The Project
The Core Valleys Lines is a Welsh Government funded transformation project under the heading ‘Transport For Wales’ building the new South Wales Metro. This three quarter of a billion pound project involves:
- Electrify around 170km of track
- Upgrade all the stations and signalling
- Build at least two new stations.
Griffiths have been awarded a substantial amount of work to make all this happen.
As well as carrying out works, we are committed to helping and supporting those communities along the Core Valleys Lines.
Meet Sally Safesteps
Our Health & Safety Mascot “Sally Safesteps” would be delighted to visit primary schools in the area to deliver her important message of the very real dangers of entering or playing around a construction site.
The message can be adapted to suit issues relevant to a school’s specific curriculum. We have developed age-appropriate Sally Safesteps supporting material for pupils including a Sally Mascot. If you are a head teacher or a teacher in a local primary school and would like to invite Sally to visit, or would like further information, please get in touch!
Call Terry Davies our Public Liaison Officer, on 07812 003055 or email email@example.com

Newsletters will appear here, shortly after publication.
In collaboration with the Art Department at Aberdare Community School, pupils created artwork depicting important historical events in Aberdare. We proudly display these artworks on our hoarding at the Aberdare Station Improvement Works compound. There are some talented artists!
Along with colleagues from Transport For Wales, we visited Gwaunfarren primary School, Merthyr Tydfil and presented the Bridge to Schools activity, which is a 12m replica of the Second Severn Crossing. The pupils spent the morning learning about construction, teamwork, listening, supporting each other and, of course, bridge building. The pupils even convinced their teacher to walk across it!
Along with colleagues from Transport For Wales and Siemens, we visited Gwaelod Y Garth Primary School, Gwaelod Y Garth and presented the Bridge to Schools activity.
In collaboration with Coleg y Cymoedd, Terry Davies and Sam Pogson from Griffiths attended a careers fair at Nantgarw College. 3 Engineering students later took part in work experience with Griffiths.
We supported the AP Cymru, The Neurodiversity Charity based in Taffs Well, with the donation of 2 office chairs.
Georgie Davies and Terry Davies visited Aberdare Community School and took part in a Careers Carousel, speaking to over 120 pupils about opportunities in construction.
Griffiths sponsored a new Nativity Shed for St Mary and St James Church, Taffs Well.
