The Redhayes landmark pedestrian and cycle bridge over the M5 is a project which evolved from a study looking at Green Infrastructure (GI) in Exeter and East Devon.

Bridge Over M5 - Artist ImpressionHaving been identified as a key GI project, a bid for funding was submitted to the Community Infrastructure Fund (CIF) by Devon County Council with supporting letters from Exeter City Council, East Devon District Council and the Science Park partners, (the bridge provides direct access into the site of Exeter Science Park).

In the summer of 2009, news of a successful bid for £5.5 million was welcomed by all partners and detailed design work was immediately commissioned.

This project is an excellent example of how working in partnership is enabling us to deliver major projects in the growth area.

As a growth point we are committed to delivering sustainable developments and providing sustainable transport links over the M5 is integral to our plans. 

Transport Minister Cycles Redhayes BridgeWe also believe that the pedestrian and cycle bridge is an excellent example of how green travel routes can be built into major developments and reduce the need to travel by car.

The cycle link provided by the new bridge connect with Exeter's cycling network creating a network of routes into the city and out across the growth area.
