New Marsh Barton railway station taking shape
Published: 27 January 2022
Work on Marsh Barton railway station is progressing well and remains on track for completion next winter.
Construction on the station, which is located near the Energy from Waste plant on the eastern edge of Marsh Barton, started last spring.
Development of the two platforms is ongoing and concrete piles and pile caps have been completed on both platforms. Concrete beams and slabs have been installed on platform one.
Work is underway on the foundations for the pedestrian and cycle bridge which is due to be installed in the coming months. This bridge will provide active travel links to the station as well as improving connections between Alphington, Marsh Barton and the Riverside Valley Park.
Work has also begun on the access roads and pavements leading into the Station.
The station at Marsh Barton, which is being developed by Graham Construction Ltd on behalf of Devon County Council, is a core element of the Devon Metro rail strategy for Exeter.
