Demolition work gathers pace at former Exeter Bus Station

Published: 14 February 2024

Bus station demolition underway

Work is gathering pace to demolish the former Exeter bus station in the city centre.

Over the next few months contractor Wring Group will remove asbestos from the site in Bampfylde Street, while the current buildings and structures will be knocked down and the site made secure.

As these pictures show, work on the top apron of the former station is well underway.

Temporary uses for the space are being considered once demolition is complete. In the longer term the area is expected to be redeveloped with new buildings and uses.

The former bus station, which was replaced by a brand new facility in July 2021, has been a well-known Exeter landmark for 60 years.

The former station opened on 5 July 1964, replacing an earlier bus station on Paul Street, which became a car park.
