LLANGOLLEN LINE  GOODS JUNCTION TRACKWORK  AND SIGNALLING MODIFICATIONS

During 2011 and 2012, it was decided to realign the north end of the junction to eliminate the speed restriction enforced by the points at that end of the passing loop. Atthe same time, the crossover to Pentrefelin Yard was replaced further north. To accommodate these changes, signals had to be moved and the opportunity was taken to refurbish and repaint them. When all was ready, the junction was remodelled and a significant improvement in traffic flow gained. The work is not yet complete, and is continuing in stages.
