I would like to thank passengers and all those affected by the closure of the line. The severity of the rain and flooding had a devastating impact and washed away enough of the track to make it very dangerous. We put in place immediate plans to reopen the railway as efficiently and as safely as we could.
I would also like to say a special thank you to our teams who worked 24/7 in all weather conditions to reopen this important line ahead of schedule. I am also very grateful to our partners at Transport for Wales during these essential works.
