Train operator affected
Transport for Wales
Description

Following 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 currently unable to run between Llandudno Junction and Blaenau Ffestiniog.

The line is expected to reopen in the summer, although an exact date has yet to be confirmed.

How does this affect my journey?

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

The line remains closed as significant repair work is being undertaken. Specialist engineers have been busy designing a tunnel to carry water underneath the railway, constructing embankments, removing debris and refurbishing level crossings, in order to safely restore the track.

You can view images of the damage here.

Bus information:

The buses will reflect the normal train timetable, subject to traffic conditions. Customers with restricted mobility and bus accessibility restrictions (e.g. wheelchairs or 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.
