Outside London, the greatest need is for a fast and convenient cross-country rail system.
And in the South West, we need a new railway west of Exeter, bypassing the scenic but unsustainable coastal route to Plymouth, and reducing the rail journey time from Exeter
to Penzance to much less than the present three hours. Otherwise we shall continue to drive and fly.
