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 and the Tamar Trails area.
The County Council has produced a Draft Option Assessment Report to consider the wider transport strategy for the corridor between Tavistock and Plymouth. This draft report identifies that the railway is the most appropriate scheme for improving transport in the area. The Draft Report is available below.
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.
Consultation feedback is included in the report below:
Although the consultation has now closed, the consultation documentation is still available to view below:
