Travelling to Graig Wen by train
During the period Barmouth Viaduct is closed you can still reach Graig Wen easily by public transport. A bus replaces the train from Machynlleth to Fairbourne but it follows a similar route around the coast to the train and doesn’t take much longer.
Barmouth Bridge restoration work
The £30 million restoration project has been taking place in phases over the last 3 years. The contractors are working hard in all weathers, sometimes 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The bridge looks spectacular lit up at night while they work. This year they are replacing the large metal span elements of the viaduct.
