THE DEVELOPMENT OF BARMOUTH JUNCTION. Mr. Solomon Andrews (Cardiff) has commenced operations on his estate in this neighbourhood. A strong sea wall is being erected between Vegla Fawr and Vegla Fach, on the South-east side of the River Mawddach, and another embankment is con- templated between Vegla Fawr and Barmouth Bridge, thus enclosing some acres of the fore-shore. Men are also engaged in constructing a tramroad from the Arthog side to Vegla Island. The tram- road is intended for carrying materials for making roads and building houses. The Cambrian Rail- ways Company and Mr. Andrews are working con- jointly to build a reservoir up in the hills above Arthog for supplying Barmouth Junction and the new houses with water, and also to construct a highway for the use of pedestrians and cyclists at the back of the Railway Station, connecting it with the foot-path provided by Barmouth Bridge. Mr. Andrews has moreover in view a Cable Railway up to the lakes, and further in the direction of Cader Idris. This is constantly good news to the district, and so far as desirable building land is concerned the spot has many natural beauties. The making of it would be a vehicular bridge over the estuary of the Mawddach, which would prove also of immense value to Barmouth, which suffers materially from scarcity of outlets. It is reported that Mr. Andrews has this undertaking in contemplation.
