To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many K2 speed restrictions exist on the rail line between Paddington and Plymouth; if he will list them; and what was the date and reason for their imposition. [38836]

Railtrack inform me that the total number of speed restrictions currently in place is approximately 16. All of these restrictions have been in place for between one and 14 months and in each case the reason for the restriction is the condition of the track.
