Devon Tarka branch line re-opens after flooding
A branch line in Devon, closed because of flooding, has re-opened.
The Tarka Line between Exeter St Davids and Barnstaple closed after severe flooding last month between Crediton and Barnstaple.
The route has re-opened with temporary 20mph speed restrictions at the Portsmouth Arms and Chapelton areas, adding four minutes to journeys.
A revised First Great Western timetable will operate to allow for the time increase, Network Rail said.
The Tarka line runs for 39 miles (63km) between Exeter and Barnstaple.
