    Routes affected

    Between Llandudno Junction / Llandudno and Blaenau Ffestiniog

    Description

    The line between Llandudno Junction and North Llanrwst has now reopened, and trains are running, following extensive repairs to the infrastructure in multiple locations along the Conwy Valley line.

    Trains are still unable to run between North Llanrwst and Blaenau Ffestiniog, and buses continue to replace trains. However, this part of the line is expected to reopen on Wednesday 24 July.

    What work has been undertaken?

    Specialist engineers have been busy creating a tunnel to carry water underneath the railway, constructing embankments, removing debris and refurbishing level crossings, in order to safely restore the track. Alongside this restoration work, Network Rail has increased the speed that trains can run between Dolgarrog and North Llanwrst.

    You can view images of the damage caused by the flooding here.

    Bus information:

    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.
