Network Rail has announced that their engineers have completed maintenance work on Mynydd underbridge ahead of schedule

Station Road reopened on Saturday 14 September following a three-month closure due to maintenance work being carried out on Mynydd underbridge.

The work has increased the lifespan of the bridge.

Engineers and contractors have successfully improved the stability, drainage and masonry features of the underbridge. A

large metal redundant span was removed which will significantly reduce maintenance upkeep of the bridge

What did the officials say?

Richard Berg, scheme project manager for Network Rail said:

“We are pleased to have completed this essential maintenance ahead of time.

“The underbridge has been greatly improved and will prevent further significant maintenance work and subsequent road closures.

“We would like to thank the local community for their patience and understanding during this project.”
