Between Llandudno and Blaenau Ffestiniog

TOC(s) affected
Arriva Trains Wales

In late February, storm Doris caused significant damage to the line near Pont-y-Pant station. There have been tree and rock falls from an overhang on Foel Felen mountain.

The line remains closed, to allow Network Rail and contractors to continue work to stabilise/repair the damage and make the area safe for trains to run. Network Rail continue to monitor the ongoing repair works and estimate that the line will remain closed until at least mid April.

Until the line re-opens, buses will replace trains between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog from Monday to Saturday. Services do not run on this line on Sundays in the winter timetable.

The National Rail Enquiries real-time Journey Planner is showing the correct bus timetable up to and including Friday 31 March (please disregard any trains that are showing). For journey enquiries after this date, please check back closer to the time.
