Network Rail will be taking the lead on the next stage of work to deliver railway stations serving Wellington and Cullompton following a £5m award from the Restoring Your Railway fund.
The funding will be used to now develop a detailed design for the stations and a full business case, to be submitted to the Department for Transport (DfT). It is anticipated that this next stage will be completed by no later than the end of December 2023.
Both proposed stations are located between Exeter and Taunton on the Great Western Mainline.
