Conwy Valley Railway Update
Chris Pearce, Network Rail’s head of operations delivery for Wales and Borders and Bethan Jelfs, Customer Delivery Director for Transport for Wales Rail Services, said:
“The Conwy Valley Line is currently closed as a result of the recent storms the country experienced. Because of this period of extreme weather, and the subsequent damage and conditions on site, access to some parts of this line was only possible this week to ascertain the full extent of the impact.
“We are absolutely committed to reopening the line as soon as possible. We fully recognise the importance of the Conwy Valley Line and the vital role it plays in the communities it serves and the local economies it supports.
“While we cannot give an exact date of when we envisage the line reopening, we estimate that the work we need to undertake will take at least eight weeks to complete.
“We are organising alternative road transport wherever possible but, as always, we encourage all passengers to check before they travel.
“We will give updates on the Conwy Valley Line as work progresses.”
