Dawlish Alternative Route Proposals Leaked

The details of the report reviewing alternative routes around Dawlish has been leaked and lead to several stories through various outlets. The report was commissioned following the failure of the sea wall at Dawlish and the subsequent closure of the railway line.

The construction of alternative routes was classified as having eye watering costs. This has been confirmed as sitting somewhere between £500 million and £3 billion (although which routes cost these amounts has not been confirmed).

The PM has confirmed that all options remain on table and local politician Gary Streeter MP has called for ‘Cool Heads’ on the peninsula and discussions once the details are published by the DfT.
