Trains between Exeter and Newton Abbot have been cancelled this morning due to more storm damage to the main railway line at Dawlish.
How can the government consider HS2 as a priority, when nothing has been done to prevent rail travel in Devon and Cornwall.
I would think it's importance for supplies to the Navy in Plymouth alone would be a major concern.
Line needs to be kept away from the sea..becoming impossible, sea always wins. line needs to end at Dawlish Warren for Dawlish just local trains, .divert the mainline inland from Exminster-Newton. Jusr run a branch from Newton to serve Teignmouth.. offer line to someone wants to take it on as a tourist attracrtion to Dawlish. but it cant be reliable all year round service as today proves.
What would happen to Starcross, Dawlish and Teignmouth if there was no protection, (which they now have) if there was no rail line?
They'd get flooded.
