[Homework]2014-02-15 洪水切断英格兰多数铁路

Repairing the damage to the rail network in the southwest of England could run into spring. Huge containers filled with concrete and rocks at the broken track at Dolton Devon are little more than a temporary patch-up. Empty tracks for miles and mies means that no one is going anywhere fast.-It typically takes two and a quarter to three hours. It's probably taken up to five hours.
-I'm gonna go bus to Bristol Parkway. Train to R* changes...
-How long do you think it will take?
-No idea, no idea.
At Exeter where thousands connect each day. Buses are the new trends, and they are moving thousands of passengers. It means hours are added to daily journeys. Hugh Blackstaffe travels regularly between the southwest and London, a journey made more difficult now.
-With weather being this bad, it's just gonna continue to be a huge problem.
-So what will you do, if you... 'cause you need to do this journey regularly, what are you gonna do?
-I'm just gonna have to go and bear it. I'm just suck up and deal with whatever threatens. Hopefully, they will get down here eventually, even if it means one in the morning. I mean it's important.
Any passengers wanting to heads south of here will have to get on a bus like this or do it on their own steam. Anyone who wants to go off to London will have to get on board and divert to Bristol. This will become a way of life for thousands of commuters for the foreseeable future at least.
Network rail say they are doing all they can to fix the broken tracks to get the trains running again, but admit that more storms may bring more misery.
-It's not just the flooding. It's the grand water, the water table not just what you see floods, but Hampshire and Sessex, ** all the way round through ** canal's way. It's the highest even been for some time, so a lot of our bailments, a lot of our track is very heavily water-loaded at the moment.
The bad weather had put lives on hold for those on the eye of this storm, but it's a fact that are being felt far and wide now, as transport links here fill the stream.
