A First Great Western local service from Exeter passes the site proposed for Marsh Barton station
(July 2015)

Marsh Barton railway station is a proposed station in the Marsh Barton area of Exeter, Devon. The station would be located on the Riviera Line between Exeter St Thomas and Starcross stations. Marsh Barton is identified as a strategic employment area in local planning policy, and the new station will support employment development.[1]

Plans for the station are being developed by Network Rail and Devon County Council[2][3] as part of the "Devon Metro" proposal.

Work was due to start on the station in early 2017, and Devon County Council hoped that it would be open in December 2017.[4] However as of February 2019, no work has started.[5]
