[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 Dawlish in Denvon are little more than a temporary patch-up. Empty track from miles to miles means that no one is going anywhere fast.

It typically takes 2 and a quarter hours to 3 hours. It's probably, say, about 5 hours.


I'm gonna go bus to Prisle, Parkway. Train to Redinon changed again.


How long do you think that will take?


No idea. No idea.


At Exeter where thousands connect each day, buses are the new trends. 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 the weather being widely bad, it's just gonna continue to a huge problem.


So what will you do if you have ... 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 it up and deal with whatever frozen. Hopefully, they all get down here eventually even if it means one of the morning, I mean, it's important.


Any passengers wanting to head south of here will have to get on the 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 what they can to fix the broken tracks to get the trains running again. But amid more storms may bring more miseries.


It's not just flooding. It's the groundwater, the watertable, not just what you see, floods, but Hampshire Sosic Sorry all the way run through ten canal's way. It's the highest for some time. So a lot of our bankmen, so a lot of our track, is very heavily waterloaded at the moment.


The bad weather has put lives on hope for those in the eye of the storm. But its effect has been felt far and wide now as transport links here, fill the stray.
