Lottie’s facelift
Another key task in the Winter Maintenance Programme has been completed. The road surface at Quarry Lane Crossing, better known as Lottie’s Crossing, had deteriorated badly and was in urgent need of replacement.

A five day road closure was arranged with Gwynedd Council, allowing time for the crossing to be excavated, track lifted and replaced.

New rail was installed with a steel tray to hold the tarmac in place and prevent the edges from crumbling and the road reopened on schedule.

The new rail now extends towards Minffordd, joining up with the track laid last Winter by the Network Rail Apprentices and will be renewed towards Boston Lodge as far as Minffordd cemetery.
