Transport Planning

Tavistock to Bere Alston Railway

Devon County Council has an aspiration to reopen the railway line between Tavistock and Bere Alston. The reopening of this section of line would provide a new, sustainable link between Tavistock and Plymouth for commuter journeys, help to minimise traffic on the A386, link Tavistock to the national rail network and also provide an alternative travel option for leisure, education and retail journeys.

The County Council is also planning a trail between Tavistock, the Tamar Valley Trails area and the Bere Peninsular. It is intended that this can be potentially provided in phases.

Latest news…


A public consultation took place between 25 January and 8 February 2013. The consultation has now closed. The consultation provided the public and interested stakeholders with further information regarding the project and has helped the County Council to understand the views of the local community. These views will be used to inform the development of the project in future.
