Network Rail's flood plans impress Exeter MP
EXETER'S MP has been reassured by Network Rail that proposals to protect the city's rail links from flooding are a priority.
Following talks with Network Rail, Ben Bradshaw told the Echo: "It is reasonably encouraging that they are very aware of the strength of local and regional feeling about the problems at Cowley Bridge.
"It's unacceptable for the whole of Devon and Cornwall to be cut off for such a long time as they were in November and December.
"It's very welcome that Network Rail appear to be taking this seriously and I look forward to them announcing more details of their work plans and time scales."

Mr Bradshaw has been told that work is already under way to raise the cabling on to stilts in the area around Cowley Bridge so that in future the railway line can open again much more quickly than previously.
Mr Bradshaw said: "I was told that the problems arose from massive rainfall in the catchment areas of the Exe and the Culm and in terms of prevention there is not a lot they think they can do to stop that. What they do think is that they can improve the speed of recovery."
