West Devon Transport Hub
The West Devon Transport Hub project will deliver a brand new, purpose-built railway station as an exciting next step for the Dartmoor Line.
The station is planned to open in 2025 as part of the £15 million project.
Funding comes from the government’s Levelling Up Fund (£13.4m), Devon County Council (£1.4m), West Devon Borough Council (£120,000) and Network Rail (£25,000).
The project will help more people travel sustainably. The station will have cycle parking and electric car charging points. Walking & cycling routes will be enhanced. Buses will call at the station.
The new station will bring huge benefits to West Devon's economy, in particular to Okehampton and its surrounding areas: connecting people with jobs, education and other opportunities.
The new station will serve the growing east side of the town, reduce traffic through the town centre and on Station Road and relieve pressure on the existing station's car park.
Just 2 minutes from the A30, the new station will give North Cornwall and West Devon residents easier access by train to Exeter and beyond.
