Funding for railway line upgrade through Dawlish announced today

I am delighted that the next stage of funding has been confirmed by the Secretary of State today.

Following the cliff collapse at theTeignmouth in December 2014, £5m was allocated in the March 2016 budget to protect the line. Today's announcement means that a further £10m will be allocated to increase resilience on the line.

If you would like to read the Secretary of State's letter, it is attached below.
