Dawlish Sea Wall - Protection for the Future

Dawlish sea wall was battered by waves and storms in the spring of 2014, so much so that part of it was washed away completely, leaving the rail lines dangling above the beach. Trains could go no further south west than Exeter for many months, affecting the local economy and disrupting travellers and commuters.

Richard Younger-Ross has long argued for a wave breaking reef to be built offshore to absorb the impact of future storm fronts and protect the sea wall. This would be cheaper than building an inland route and would protect the economy of our vibrant seaside towns.

Please sign the petition to support Richard's call for the consideration of a wave breaking reef.

Waves over Dawlish Station

I/We the undersigned call upon the Government to ensure that the Dawlish to
Teignmouth rail line remains open and to investigate how a wave breaking
reef could protect the sea wall.
