Following damage to the railway caused by the storm surges and subsequent flooding in December 2013, the line is currently closed between Harlech and Pwllheli. The line is expected to remain closed until at least the end of August 2014.

Railway engineers are continuing to repair severe storm damage at various locations, now mainly at Criccieth. Pictures of the damage can be seen here, here and here.

In addition to problems caused by the storms, work is taking place to replace the wooden Pont Briwet road and railway viaduct over the Afon Dwyryd near Llandecwyn, which has been declared structurally unsafe and has closed. A new bridge is being built to carry two lanes of road traffic and a single track railway.
