E4 Cycle Route

In 2017 Devon started work on the design and construction of Exeter’s E4 Cycle Route, a 5km route connecting Redhayes Bridge (Monkerton) to the University’s Streatham Campus (city centre).

The design of this route is ambitious and provides a step change in the quality of walking and cycling infrastructure across the city. The route will segregate pedestrians, cyclists and vehicular traffic where possible.

When complete, route will link residents in the east of Exeter with Exeter parks, leisure centres, schools, supermarkets, Exeter Arena, Exeter University and the city centre.

The work has already begun and the first 3.2km of this route will be completed during spring 2020.

The E4 route has been divided up in four phases. More information about each of these phases, including details of the proposals, links to construction plans and traffic management is available on this website.
