Dartmoor Line: Campaign for Better Transport comments

19 March 2021

Responding to the announcement that regular passenger services are set to be restored on the Dartmoor Line, Paul Tuohy, Chief Executive of Campaign for Better Transport, said:

"It's great news that regular passenger services are to return to the Dartmoor Line. The Restoring Your Railway fund is having an impact, but let's go much further: a really bold step change in investment could connect many more communities to the rail network, helping the economy to recover in a way that is fair and sustainable."

Paul Tuohy added:

"It's important that Network Rail deliver this project on time and at a reasonable cost to enable rail investment to go as far as possible."
