We are investigating the feasibility of re-opening a railway line between Aberystwyth and Carmarthen.


Project status: considering

Current progress

We have funded a WelTAG Phase One study to consider the benefits of the proposals. 

This will build on the previous feasibility study that we funded.

Why we are doing it

The line between Carmarthen and Aberystwyth closed to passenger traffic in 1965, and freight in 1973. 

We have been asked by members of the public to consider re-opening the line.
