I hope she or he would not lose their job but some train drivers are so badly affected that they are never able to drive again.
I was told last week by GWR that the first wave was built in Japan and the second wave is being built in Italy. As long as they are not of the same design as the original Virgin Voyager trains then the waves crashing over them should not be a problem. Time will tell...........
Well we haven't been cut off for the last 100 years, well, except for four months in 2014, but the way things are going with the buses and trains we WILL be cut off! What are the district councillors doing about all of this...........not a lot from the deafening silence from them!
I know! But whatever they spend on the line is useless while ever we have Voyagers travelling along the line! But..........CC are about to solve this problem by stopping all of their services at Exeter! So, we won't have that problem after December 2017 but we also won't have much of a service!
All well and good but they also need to build trains that don't break down when they get hit by waves!
And the concert at Powderham!!!
Me too Deedoodle! I too walked around town last week in the late afternoon and evenings and saw the usual suspects openly drinking from beer cans, cider bottles etc! Not a plastic or real Bobby in sight to impose the PSPO! Why do we have this problem in Dawlish and other towns do not seem suffer a similar problem?
As was seen in Newquay over the weekend, it takes just one unexpected wave to devastate a family forever!
@Liberal Democrat, perhaps you should now request your FOI given the disclosure of the additional £100,000 this event cost, split evenly between Exeter and Teignbridge. An FOI would reveal the true cost of this wasteful event to taxpayers, they have a right to know!
We have been landed with a bill for another £50,000 on top of the £100,000 already wasted on the Big Weekend. It was a Big Weekend - a Big Waste of tax payers money!
