And I thought there was no money in the councils coffers, just shows what a bunch of two faced liars they all are. Cant mend the roads, cant meet the needs of the elderly and infirm, cant keep childrens homes and social services open, cant support Surestart, nurseries and leisure centres. But yet they carry on with their ludicrus backward thinking ideas and excuses. Try subsisdising the ...

@Andysport Good response and typical of the totally selfish attitude you and the others like you employ. What about the contribution to the ecconomy made by all the car users and owners and the fuel duty already paid. How is that shortfall going to be made up. Not by cyclists who pay naff all to use the roads or paths. TDC alone made £4.5 million last year on car parking. We have spent ...

@ MrsC Now Im getting as confused as yourself what lorry are we on about. The one I bully the lycra loonies onto the cycle path with.

Its about priorities nothing else, you all know how many cuts the county has and is about to face yet you support this absolute waste of money on a minority folly that is likely to have limited use.  Great thinking close down the leisure centres we all use but build a cycle path for the few. It wouldnt be so bad if the trail kept the lycra loonies off the road but it dosent Funny how everytime ...

Another joke from DCC one minute their closing childrens homes, taking about having to move out of their offices, moaning about having to find £750 million to mend the roads. Then he ho £1.6 million pops up from somewhere to build yet another bloody cycle path. Something seriously needs to be done about these idiots they live in the dark ages

2014 Visitor Season

If what you say is correct Michael then as a town we are in a very vunerable situation as to our future sea defense. It is also unthinkable that Network Rail have the capability and entittlement to hold the town to ransome. It now becomes even clearer that once the trains are running again nothing further will be done for a very long time. Perhaps now is the time for a published guaranteed ...

@stephen15 You are spot on there and typical of why Teignmouth prospers and Dawlish seeps further into decay. Yes we will undoubtably "return to normal" with no lessons learnt, no changes made, no new thinking and no new investment. Unless your a historical railway fanatic its perfectly obvious that the line is just a blight on the town which in turn prevents any development of the sea ...

@michaelclayson Thanks for the info however it isent very helpfull in addressing the main points of the post. Perhaps you could enlighten further as to A) What gives Network Rail the right to virtually take over the town and declare huge parts of it "off limits" and if this is likely to be a regular occurrance then the sooner they move the line inland the better. B) Where do Network rail ...

With all the activity in Dawlish currently surrounding the repair of the railway line it seems that all three levels of council have forgotten that today is the start of the holiday/visitor season for Dawlish. Once again we a going to loose out to Teignmouth, their seafront to a certain degree of useability has been repaired, cleaned up and made ready for use. Ours is still covered in broken ...

Wonder what the rush was to leave the Mount, must have got the bill
