One of D&P’s current projects and work continues for the NEW 16million 2 platform train station & pedestrian and cycle bridge at Marsh Barton Exeter. Work contracted to do: Reinforcement, shuttering, concrete placement & formwork.
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.
The project is expected to be completed in Winter 2022.
