Rhondda Tunnel Society gets £90,000 grant for inspection

A group set up to reopen a disused Rhondda railway tunnel to cyclists and walkers is to receive a £90,000 grant.

The money, from Pen y Cymoedd Wind Farm Community Fund, will be used for a detailed examination of the tunnel between Blaencwm and Blaengwynfi.

Rhondda Tunnel Society chairman Steve Mackey said the resulting report would be "a key step in persuading a Welsh Government body to take ownership".

The tunnel is currently owned by Highways England.

Mr Mackey described the announcement as "a major breakthrough for the project".
