Storm Ciara, which bought 90mph winds, extreme rainfall and flooding across Wales on Sunday 9 February, has caused extensive damage on the Conwy Valley Line, north of Llanrwst.

How is this affecting the train service?

Whilst the line is closed engineers will install a 2000m armoured bund to protect against further damage at sites previously affected by flooding.

Additional information:

Network Rail engineers inspecting the line have identified several sites where the ballast supporting the track has been washed away by floodwater. The storm has also damaged fencing and level crossings at several locations. Several weeks of repair work are underway.
