Cancellations and major delays continue on the train lines across North Wales today.

Arriva Trains Wales (ATW) have been forced to reduce services between Holyhead and Manchester/Cardiff, and extended suspension to services between Llandudno and Blaenau Ffestiniog until further notice.

This is due to heavy overnight snowfalls, extremely low temperatures and strong winds.

A spokesperson for ATW said: “Our network passengers can still expect to experience short notice cancellations or delays on Friday, March 2.

“Railway personnel will be working hard in extremely challenging conditions, but there is still likely to be a significant impact today due to the expected severity of the weather.”

The Journal reported on Wednesday that many services have also been cancelled after the rail operator pulled all of its long distance trains for extra safety inspections across Wales.

A replacement bus service is currently being offered to passengers travelling between Llandudno and Blaenau Ffestiniog.

The spokesperson added: “We continue to advise people to travel only if absolutely necessary, and we will also be making it as easy as possible for our customers to claim compensation if their journey has been affected by these issues.

“Tickets for travel today will be honoured in the coming days and ticket acceptance has been arranged with other operators where possible.”
