The renewal of Traeth Mawr Viaduct will begin this weekend.

Engineers will replace timbers on the rail over river viaduct during a nine-day closure of the Cambrian Line from 13 to 21 of February.

The £1.85m project will help to improve the resilience of the Cambrian Line by helping to prevent future periods of unplanned work, minimising disruption for passengers and reducing maintenance costs to the taxpayer.

Transport for Wales will be running rail replacement services during the work and those who need to travel are advised to plan ahead and allow additional time.

Our contractors Amco Giffen began setting up site on 4 January. We expect to return to carry out further work to the viaduct, which is likely to take place in 2022 or 2023.

As always, please do get in touch if you would like any further information.
