Skarloey Road Viaduct, also known as Halfway Viaduct, is a ten-arch bridge on the Culdee Fell Railway, located just before Skarloey Road station.

History

The Railway Series

Having skirted Poll-ny-Chrink, the line has to climb sharply in order to surmount the wooded ridge out of which the road to Skarloey was cut. A ten-arched viaduct was necessary to span the gap, and reach the site selected for the station. This viaduct was the most difficult civil engineering feature of the whole line, and pending its completion the construction of the upper section had to be delayed for some eight to nine months.

Trivia

  • The viaduct is based on Llanberis Viaduct on the Culdee Fell Railway's real-life counterpart, the Snowdon Mountain Railway.
