North Wales Slate Waste Removal on Conwy Valley Railway Line

An environmental impact study by Jacobs Consultants for Conwy County Council, North Wales, has reported that proposals to move the slate waste from Blaenau Ffestiniog in North Wales to England via the Conwy Valley railway line will cause considerable noise pollution and disruption. Jacobs suggest that houses close to the line be fitted with sound proofing to lessen the noise levels. Other proposals include upgrading the line to a continuously welded line in residential areas, restricting freight movements to daytime, erecting screening, and reducing speed sensitive areas.
