North Wales Assembly Member Mark Isherwood has praised progress on work to restore the Glyn Valley Tramway to its former glory after visiting the site.
Anwyl Construction of Deeside recently started a five-day track clearance, operating between Hand Lane Bridge and Levers Bridge (Ty Ririd Cutting).
With this work undertaken the Glyn Valley Tramway Trust (GVTT) will be in a position to lay approximately 700m of ballast and lay the foundations
Mr Isherwood, who has long supported the GVTT in their work to restore the tramway, was among those who visited the site to witness the work get underway.
He said: “Reinstating the railway will be a major boost to tourism in Chirk and the surrounding area. I have worked with the Trust for a number of years as they have strived to turn their dream of steam trains running here once again into a reality and I would like to congratulate them on all they have achieved to date. I look forward to visiting in the future to see further progress.”
