Written by Gavin on 4th November 2022
Rail services will be unavailable between Pontypridd and Treherbert on two separate occasions in November as Transport for Wales continues to make upgrades to the Core Valley Lines for the South Wales Metro.
The first closure takes place between Sunday 6 November to Saturday, 12 November, before a second closure the following week from Saturday 19 November to Friday 25 November.
Work will include foundations for overhead line equipment and signage installation along the route, station works, track lowering, and drainage works.
During the closure, bus replacement services will be in operation and TfW is encouraging g passengers to check for the latest travel information before making their journeys.
The South Wales Metro will significantly improve connectivity throughout South Wales and provide access to jobs, leisure and other opportunities for the people of Wales, through unifying rail, bus and active travel routes. The project has been part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.
