Improvement work on the St Thomas railway station is now underway after the project has managed to secure the necessary funding from the Devon County Council, central government, and the railway industry, a recent news report in the local media has been able to reveal.
Enhancement works will see the introduction of better shelters, more accessible platforms, enhanced lighting and CCTV networks.
Local councillor Rob Hannaford was, for many years, a member of the Exeter Rail Working Group, and consistently lobbied for extra investment in the station.
He said: “The county council has put in just short of £270,000 and is using £175,000 of Local Sustainable Transport Funding to help provide the additional train services, but it is not funding the station improvements, which are being led by First Great Western.
“The station and service improvements are being introduced as part of the INTERREG Citizens’ Rail project.”
