Introduction

Plymouth Rail Station is the busiest station in the South West and acts as the primary gateway to the wider region for long distance rail travel.

Plymouth also has 666 miles of footway along roads, with most of the city’s off-road routes available to both pedestrians and cyclists.

Wider connectivity remains a concern for the city and the wider South West both in respect of road and rail. Plymouth is located 230 miles from London with the average train journey time of three hours 15 minutes and a route that is subject to low levels of reliability and resilience. Also, despite being home to Europe’s largest naval base and an international ferry terminal, Plymouth is 40 miles from the nearest motorway.
