At the February meeting of the Devon and Exeter Rail Project Working Party, an update was provided with regards to the proposed railway station at Marsh Barton.
Construction has been delayed to allow for design changes to meet changing Network Rail standards. It is expected that these may affect the construction costs. If these issues are resolved, it is expected that a construction start date will be announced in the summer of 2017. Meanwhile, a bid to the second round of the New Stations Fund has been submitted.
