Its long and thin

Another quickie transport story...


The current economic difficulties in the UK threaten planned projects to improve the transport infrastructure in Devon and Cornwall, a report has said. The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) has categorised the region's infrastructure as "at risk". Severe weather and congestion on major routes can "effectively cut off Devon and Cornwall", it said.


"It's a long, thin peninsula and the rail system and the motorway network system is quite fragile"


For the rest of this vague report: BBC News


The full South West Regional Report (PDF) from ICE can be previewed here on PT Google Docs.
