Dec 2022 – Elan Valley Railway

Following assessment by specialist engineers, Devil’s Gulch rock cutting is to be repaired and reopened to Elan Valley Trail walkers/cyclists after all! The work was scheduled to begin on 9 Jan 2023 and will involve descaling the rock formation, anchoring and bolting the rock and adding rock netting. It will be carried out by a specialist Porthmadog-based contractor. Although the start date has slipped and assuming no more rock does, completion is still expected in the spring.
