A £30MILLION-plus commitment to protecting the main seafront rail line into South Devon has been made by Network Rail.
Patrick Hallgate, western route managing director for Network Rail, revealed the commitment at a meeting of Torbay Business Forum when he gave details of the company's current plans for protecting and enhancing the region's rail network.
HS2 will save 20 minutes on journeys to Birmingham at a cost of 17.4 billon they should scrap the idea and spend the money on what we already have and improve the system track rolling stock etc.
Gather the new departure area at the destination of HS2 will be so big that it will take 20 minutes to exit it...hmm now thats food for thought.
Better to spend the money on re opening some closed lines. Work on Tavistock line is fue to start...if only they could link Okehampton there would be an alternative route if the cliffs fall or sea stops services.
