Between Llandudno Junction / Llandudno and Blaenau Ffestiniog

TOC(s) affected
Transport for Wales;

Following the severe weather events on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 March, damage has occurred to the infrastructure in multiple locations along the Conwy Valley line. Trains are unable to run between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog until further notice.

How does this affect my journey?

Until the line reopens, buses will replace trains between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog.

The line is expected to remain closed as significant repair work must be undertaken. Once more accurate updates are received by Network Rail engineers, disruption information will be updated to reflect a reopening date.

You can view images of the damage here.

Customers with restricted mobility and bus accessibility restrictions (e.g. wheelchairs, mobility scooters) will be provided with special transport arrangements. We strongly advise that such customers contact Transport for Wales as far in advance of planned journeys as possible.

You can find the location of your bus replacement by checking station signs or by searching for your station on our station information pages.
