This is a longer term project after the initial section from Blaenau to Trawsfynydd is opened so the existing permissive footpath along most of it is likely to remain for quite a while yet. For a short line, it is not lacking in engineering works, running along an embankment with no fewer than three underbridges, the principle of which is 'Black Bridge', a double-span girder structure by which the branch crossed the Grand Western Canal. Disappointing news has arrived from Sustrans regarding its bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a grant to help restore the iconic Bennerley Viaduct; it has been unsuccessful.
The two ends of the route are at grid references ST 072169 (off the south end of Station Road, Burlescombe) and ST 066173, near the quarry entrance. HLF said that their recent board meeting was a 'highly competitive round of decision-making and that the current level of demand means they simply can’t support all the good heritage projects that apply to them'.
A feasibility study has been commissioned and will begin at Trawsfynydd station yard and continue to a roadside terminus at the summit of the Cwm Prysor Pass where the A4212 road has taken over the trackbed. However, track terminates at Trawsfynydd Nuclear Power Station siding and there is little ballast either.
Mike Lewis of the Green Man Backpackers in Chepstow Town Centre has this week also pledged £1,000 taking the total to £20,500 required to submit the revised Planning Applications to the Monmouthshire County Council and Forest of Dean County Council for the Wander Wye Route from the Severn Bridge to Tintern along the disused railway line.' The newsletter continued to report that both Sustrans (actually Railway Paths) and Network Rail were 'on board' with the project, and that Justin Bryce – who operates the adjoining National Diving and Activity Centre in the former Dayhouse Quarry – has given an undertaking (not legally enforceable) to work with A-B and allow public access for walking and cycling.
