Two years after the railway at Dawlish was washed away we are no closer to getting a new fast and resilient train line for Plymouth and the far south west.
The Herald is right to call for an end to bickering over rail. We need a new railway and to get there we need the study into rail connections properly funded. The money for this needs to come from Government.
With virtually the entire peninsula represented by Tory MPs you would think that Dawlish would be a priority and that block could exert real power but alas not.
Promises made by the PM have turned out to be worthless. Promises made by local our Tory MP not to vote for other transport schemes before Dawlish is sorted have turned out to be equally worthless.
There is one group of people with the power to connect the far south west with a proper, fast and resilient rail line and thats the Tory Government. Stop the bickering, find the money and build a new line.
People are tired of pre-election promises that turn out to have vaporised after votes have been counted. Plymouth needs a new train line. No more hot air, recycled and fabricated promises or hyperbole. Give us the new train line you promised and the south west deserves.
