No Cover
18 Jul 2020

I was shocked at what I heard this afternoon walking my dogs. I came across our PCSO for Dawlish, and just having a chat about the state of the country and the world. The PCSO had a call from the Sargent in Totnes about an incident in the town and needed the PCSO to attend. The PCSO explained that the Teignbridge area would have no cover if it meant that attendance in Totnes is required. But ...

Oh come on FredBasset, That's not a very nice response to Carer. I take it you are one of those conspiracy theorists. I have often agreed many times with your post's and you have always made sense to me. But on this point of wearing masks, you are completely wrong. The wearing of a mask is to protect people such as yourself. There are many reports that have also stated that if you are wearing a ...

What a mess.
24 Jun 2020

I wonder how many Dawlish residents have taken a left at the station to have a walk along pigeon alley and the old coastguards building and looked down at the beach at low tide. And what do you see? You see clumps of concrete, Iron bars, rotted groynes and various other debris. I don't know who has responsibility whether its Dawlish council or Network rail, but whoever is responsible for it needs ...

Our country and the world is upside down nothing appears real any more nobody talks to anyone, everyone, for the most part, are keeping their distance. So getting your head around this horror is so hard to imagine, its as if we are all playing a part in a horror movie. We have the American TV channel CNN pretty much on 24/7 with a lot more information. The US has a population of 330 million with ...

Can anyone understand that flights are still coming in from hot spots such as New York, Italy, Spain, France and so on, and of course the channel tunnel still running? I watched the BBC question time last night and the moderator bought up a question sent in by a person about flights still entering the country with no checks except passport control and just walk into the country, this will only ...

Sea Wall Network Rail
12 Mar 2020

I may be wrong so I'm open for correction. Was Network rail supposed to suspend all work on the sea wall and open it to the public?  I'm sure I saw a sign sometime back that stated that. This work is going to take years. Thanks in advance

Sea Wall
18 Nov 2019

Oh, come on Carer I'm all for any workers taking their scheduled breaks. But they're having a laugh at the taxpayer's expense, Network rail that is. But to see one working and twelve just standing and watching, not chatting, in fact, a couple of them sitting by the toilets. I think you are being an alarmest has anyone died in Dawlish due to storms?  I understand something needed to be done and ...

When the rail line collapsed a couple of years ago there was more urgency from the Government to get the line open. This latest project is going to be spun out as long as possible, and with a lot of manpower just standing around which has not gone unnoticed by Dawlish residents. I predict that this project will be going on much much longer than they have stated. I do feel for those of you that ...

Thanks for your agreement on this point and being three months behind at this early stage is really unacceptable.  I was talking to Network rail rep the other day and I told him that some of these workers that have nothing to do for hours should be sent down to the sea wall in front of the station and clear all the sand and silt that builds up on the walkway. Yes, they did it once but no more, he ...

Am I being petty? Yesterday a walk down to Coryton Cove and observed the work being constructed with one operator using his digger with no less than 12 workers leaning on the rail watching. There is not a hope as far as I can see that this project will be finished within the time specified. After talking to one of the workers I asked "what are they trying to achieve" he replied "I have no idea" ...
