Petition Call on Government to make provision of opening a rail connection to Plymouth via Okehampton and Tavistock

More details

There has been a longstanding wish to see an alternative rail route into Cornwall, with an extension of the Exeter to Okehampton line, through Tavistock to Plymouth. Faced with the clear threat to the Dawlish line,sharply focused on due to the February storms, this is now a priority, as a lack of Rail access into Cornwall severely threatens the Devon and Cornwall economies. We call on the Government to make funds and resources available to secure a permamnent solution.
