Grayling announces new funding for Dawlish Grayling announces new funding for Dawlish

New funding worth up to £80 million has been announced to build a higher and more resilient sea wall at Dawlish in south Devon, where storm-driven seas frequently cause damage to the main line railway. Bad weather destroyed part of the line in early 2014, blocking the only railway to Plymouth and Cornwall for six weeks. The Department for Transport has also published a new programme of wider investment in the region entitled ’Investing in the South West’, which is being launched today by transport secretary Chris Grayling during a visit to Dawlish.
