Thanks to Sea Breeze in Dawlish, a new live camera will be installed in early 2021 to watch the Dawlish railway station upgrade.
This will also be our first ever 4k, Ultra HD camera that will broadcast the station upgrade over the next couple of years.
There is still a lot of planning to be done but if you want to be one of the first people to watch this camera in early 2021, you must have a Dawlish Beach Cams subscription. You can purchase one here and the funding from the subscriptions will help towards the costs of these new high-tech 4K cameras.
Phase two of the sea wall upgrade has already started with the Wavewalker working on the piling and will continue for the next two years.
Work on the first section of wall, which runs for 400m from Colonnade underpass, has now been built, ensuring that this section of railway is more resilient for future generations.
When both sections are built, the new, larger structure will protect the town and the railway for the next 100 years.
