Rail passengers in Montgomeryshire are being warned of more disruption to services on the Cambrian Railway this weekend.

Services are running from Newtown and Caersws to Shrewsbury and Machynlleth, but it's a case of taking a laid on bus service if you're heading to the coast due to damage caused by last weekend's Storm Ciara.

Now, Transport for Wales and Network Rail are warning of more disruption this weekend due to Storm Dennis.

Heavy rain and high winds are expected to batter the area again over the weekend.

Chris Pearce, Network Rail’s head of operations delivery for Wales and Borders and Martyn Brennan, Operations Director for Transport for Wales Rail, have issued the following advice: “This Saturday will see Storm Dennis bringing winds of up to 60mph, extremely heavy rain and a potential flooding risk around our network.

“The safety of our customers and colleagues is our first priority and as a result there will be speed restrictions in place across our network, on Saturday, and some areas will see a reduced service running.

“We expect to see extremely heavy rainfall on areas already affected by Storm Ciara last week and are preparing extensively for this.

“We will be working closely together to keep our customers moving however, there are likely to be some short notice amendments on both Saturday and Sunday and we encourage all customers to check journey planning websites prior to travel.”
