Swansea District Line

Swansea District Line

The Swansea District Line is a section of freight-only line that runs from Cwrt Sart junction at Briton Ferry on the South Wales Main Line to Morlais junction near Pontarddulais on the Heart of Wales Line.

Future plans

Network Rail intend to rationalise this line and divert freight traffic via the South Wales Main Line after the replacement of the Loughor bridge and doubling of the track at Gowerton. Public transport and environmental campaigners have proposed instead that this link be restored for passenger services including building stations to serve Llandarcy and Morriston.
