With heavy rain falling across Wales, the following information has been issued by Network Rail

Bill Kelly, Network Rail’s route director for Wales and Borders said:

“Storms and heavy rain are continuing today and as a direct result of this prolonged period of extreme wet weather, a number of lines on the network are now flooding and have been closed for safety reasons.

“With wet weather predicted to continue for the rest of today, we strongly advise passengers to expect disruption and look at alternative bus or road options available to them. Rail travel out of Cardiff is unlikely to be an option for many and we do not expect this situation to improve quickly.

“We will continue working round the clock to reopen lines as soon as possible and thank passengers for their patience and understanding.”

About Network Rail

We own, operate and develop Britain's railway infrastructure; that's 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We run 20 of the UK's largest stations while all the others, over 2,500, are run by the country's train operating companies.

Usually, there are almost five million journeys made in the UK and over 600 freight trains run on the network. People depend on Britain's railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation's railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced - a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
