    In The News

    THE RIVIERA Line will feature in a new national website promoting the country's community rail lines and heritage railways to tourists both at home and abroad. The project has been awarded a £75,000 Government grant and will draw upon the digital marketing expertise of the based Devon & Cornwall Rail Partnership, who have won a number of national awards for their online campaigns. The new website will be launched in 2017 and will be accompanied by a national and international marketing campaign. It will be translated into key European languages, and will be user-friendly on PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile phones.

    DRONES are being used by Network Rail to help them protect the Dawlish rail line. Following the extreme weather at the beginning of 2014 which caused part of the railway line at Dawlish to collapse into the sea, Network Rail began working with residents on a study looking into the impact of coastal flooding, erosion and cliff instability on the route and the options available to limit the effects of these in the future.

    A PETITION has been launched to reinstate a bus route between Torbay and Dawlish Warren that has been axed by Stagecoach.

    Currently passengers on the buses can leave Torquay as late as 10.30pm, seven days a week, to return to Shaldon, Teignmouth, Dawlish, and Dawlish Warren, while from Dawlish Warren, buses run up until 11.35pm back to Torquay. However, from May 29, the Hop11 bus will be withdrawn and replaced by an extended route 22 (rebranded Hop22), meaning the last bus from Torquay to Dawlish Warren will now be at 7pm from Dawlish Warren to Torquay, at 8.10pm.

    A much more suitable bus for the busy service than the MAN MCV they use at the moment. It certainly looks the part. The last few days the PR3 has been operated by one of the new ex Citybus double deckers also in the new colours.
