DCC describes Pinhoe as “an area of significant new housing, with several thousand new homes in Exeter and East Devon within a mile of the station”; the Council also registered 130,000 passenger entry and exits at the station in 2019/2020.
The multimodel interchange is designed to prioritise sustainable travel by pedestrians, cyclists and public transport
“The site is well connected to the local cycling network, with Station Road designated as a quiet cycling route, and an off-road shared use walking and cycling route to the west.”
Their statement adds: “On balance the scheme prioritises three of the top modes of transport in the Exeter Local Plan which are pedestrian, people with mobility problems and public transport”.
