Network Rail has started building a new rockfall shelter to protect trains along a vulnerable section of the Dawlish sea wall between Holcombe and Dawlish.

The new 209-meter extension will join the previous extension that was built 100 years ago. This section will be open sided rather than a full tunnel and should be complete by the end of 2023.
