NAPARS - Newton Abbot Park and Ride Scheme

Area: Devon
Interests: Rail

This new campaign calls for the all-but-disused Heathfield Branch line from Newton Abbot (with possible extensions up the old Mortenhampstead and Teign Valley track beds) to be used as a Park and Ride line, using Parry People Movers. These eco-friendly micro-trains are ideal because they have the ability to run as trams as well, so the line to Bovey Tracey could be a road upgrade. Parry People Movers are currently used on the Stourbridge Line in the West Midlands.

The Heathfield Branch line currently has just one freight train a week.
