Rhondda Tunnel

Post by RichardCoulthurst » Mon Jan 05, 2015 10:00 am

There is a report on Wales Online that plans are being drawn up to reopen the former Rhondda & Swansea Bay Railway tunnel between Blaenrhondda and Blaengwynfi as a cycling and pedestrian route.

I seem to remember that the tunnel was very wet and was closed "temporarily" in 1968 due to subsidence caused by mining. Formal closure was in 1970.
