Marsh Barton Railway Station
Marsh Barton will be a new railway station situated on the Exeter to Newton Abbot line, south of Clapperbrook Lane adjacent to the New Energy from Waste Plant.
Marsh Barton is Exeter’s largest trading estate, and one of the largest employment sites in the region. Along with the construction of a two-platform halt, the scheme to deliver the station will include the erection of an associated pedestrian/cycle-bridge, access, parking/turning area and a pedestrian/cycle path.
The project aims to improve the competitiveness of existing businesses. It will unlock further economic growth through development at Marsh Barton and South West Exeter.
The planned growth of the area is currently restricted by the poor transport links which act as a barrier to development and will increasingly reduce the viability of existing businesses.
When the work is taking place
The work is due to start in spring 2021 and be completed in winter 2022.
Clapperbrook Lane East will be closed to vehicular traffic but remain open for pedestrians and cyclists. Vehicular access to Double Locks will be via Water Lane and the Exeter Canal Tow Path.
A stretch of the Exeter Canal towpath will be closed to pedestrians and cyclists. They will be diverted to the towpath on the opposite side of the canal.
More information regarding the diversion route can be found on one.network.
Why we have to close the road
We must ensure the safety of our workforce and the public. In order to comply with our safety guidelines, we are unable to carry out this work without closing Clapperbrook Lane East.
Local businesses such as the Double Locks Pub will remain open throughout the scheme in line with government restrictions.
