The station would be located on the Riviera Line between Newton Abbot and Torre stations. Edginswell will be the location of employment and housing development and the new station will support this development.[1] The station would also serve Torbay Hospital, The Willows retail park and the Torquay Gateway development area.

Plans for the station were approved by Torbay Council on the 27 November 2016 for the construction of a new railway station to include the following: Two single sided station platforms, provision of a footbridge between platforms, elevated walkway and access ramps, cycle spaces, extended footpath along Riviera Way, lighting and CCTV, and platform furniture to include shelter and signage . The proposed development to which the application relates is situated within 10 metres of relevant railway land.[2]Lack of funding has prevented any construction work.
