Rail improvements to be delivered in the South West
Government has confirmed that it “will deliver rail improvements in the South West”, including Devon County Council’s project to reinstate five miles of track and deliver a new single platform station at Tavistock, which would serve communities in Tavistock, Horrabridge, Lamerton, and Mary Tavy.
Other projects mentioned include making the route between Exeter and Plymouth through Dawlish more resilient in the face of extreme weather, and Mid Devon District Council’s work to reintroduce rail services to Wellington and Cullompton.
Action T21. Work with government to improve strategic and branch-line rail infrastructure and services, including reviewing the reopening of lines.
