A railway line connecting two mid Wales towns has re-opened.

Train journeys along the Heart of Wales will now start and terminate at Llanwrtyd Wells instead of Llandrindod Wells.

Transport for Wales says replacement bus services will run between Llanwrtyd Wells and Swansea until August 3 while work is carried out to fix a damaged bridge.

Worn timbers on a rail-over-river bridge at Pontarddulais was found to be unsafe, and the railway line will remain closed between Hendy Junction and Pontarddulais until all safety repairs are completed.

Transport for Wales said: "Due to limited station road access at some stations, a minibus and coach will work in tandem. It may be necessary to change vehicles.

"Facemasks/coverings are a legal requirement on public transport in England (with exemptions) and may be required by bus operators in Wales.

"Capacity is restricted due to social distancing requirements. Cycles cannot normally be carried on replacement road transport."
