The Rhondda Tunnel Society is set to receive £90,000, from Pen y Cymoedd Wind Farm Community fund, to ensure vital detailed examinations of the tunnel are made....
I welcome this fantastic news with open arms as it could be the breakthrough the Rhondda Tunnel Society needs, leading them that one step closer to finally re-opening the tunnel to walkers and cyclists.
Having already met with members of the Rhondda Tunnel Society on numerous occasions this year and lobbied both Ken Skates AM and Chris Grayling MP over the ownership of the tunnel, I am currently in the process of organising another meeting with the Society, now this funding has been made available.
It is so important that we are able to re-open the tunnel and create this major tourist attraction on our doorstep here in the #Rhondda. It is for this reason I will ensure I do everything I possibly can to support the Society and their endeavours both now and in the future on this innovative project.
