LLANDULAS. THE RAILWAY DISASTER.âThe Lhandulas Via- duct, destroyed by floods a flJw weeks ago, has been re-constructed, and on Monday goods Trains were expected to pass over, though it must undergo Government inspection before being open to passenger traffic. The flood carried away seven stone arches and their supporting piers, and fhus cut the London and North Western line to Holy- head. For some days the passenger traffic was carried on by horse vehicles between Abergele and Llandulas stations. The railway company lost no time in repairing the line, and obtained the help of the Electric Light Company, who practically turned nignt into day at the scene of the accident, and thus enabled the works to be carried on uninter- ruptedly till complGted. In a short time alow level temporary bridge was constructed, and the 'raffic was resumed a week after the disaster. Now a new viaduct has been completed of steel girders resting on massive masonry piers, and a watercourse has been arranged to prevent another breakdown.
