St Budeaux Station to Dockyard

Consultation on proposals between 28 October and 8 December

Consultation on the St Budeaux to Devonport Dockyard and Devonport Dockyard to the city centre schemes are now closed and the report will be published after we have analysed the results.

This scheme forms part of a programme of investment through the Transforming Cities Fund (TCF), that collectively, helps reduce congestion, improve air quality and help the city prosper by investing in infrastructure to improve public and sustainable transport connectivity on key commuter routes across the city.

It is one of two walking and cycling improvement schemes that will provide the new link between St Budeaux, Devonport Dockyard and the city centre.

Scheme summary


The St Budeaux to Dockyard scheme aims to connect homes, workplaces, schools, shopping and leisure destinations via a direct off-road shared use path, suitable for all ages and abilities, along Wolseley Road, Saltash Road, and Keyham Road.

Proposals include:

  • Widening footpaths to the maximum width possible for a comfortable walking and cycling shared path
  • De-cluttering the shared use path to minimise obstacles, with proposals to mitigate for any loss of street trees.
  • Installing new crossings to make it easier and safer to cross the road at key points
  • Upgrading existing crossings
  • Measures to improve safety at junctions along the new route where it crosses side roads.
  • New signage throughout to guide people along the route
  • New cycle parking facilities
  • Removal of one bus lane to enable footpath widening
  • Changes to parking provision
