St. Erth Highways Improvements

September 17th 2020

Cormac Solutions Ltd, on behalf of Cornwall Council, is inviting comments on a proposal to introduce a 20mph zone and associated highway works in St Erth.

Following the completion of the Treloweth Lane improvements (virtual footpath, extended footpath, pedestrian activated sign and street lighting) linked to the opening of the Multi Modal Hub, we are now looking to introduce the remaining highways safety measures.

This project has been on the Parish Council’s priority list for some time, including Mick Hanley’s contributions in relation to his 20 is Plenty campaign, to try and ensure that the village becomes a safer place for the whole community. This consultation is the culmination of these efforts over a number of years, taking into account feedback from the public engagement sessions held in 2018, and is considering a range of measures to include:

  • A village-wide 20mph zone and traffic calming features
  • Double yellow lines and marked parking bays along Tredrea Lane
  • A virtual footway across St Erth Bridge
  • A 30mph speed limit along Treloweth Lane & Chenhalls Road
  • A 20m extension of the footway on the west side of Chenhalls Road
  • HGV Signs to discourage use on the narrow streets and lanes

The public consultation runs for four weeks until 16th October and drawings for these proposals can be viewed by clicking here, on the Parish Council noticeboard or by visiting

If you would like any further information relating to this consultation please contact either quoting St Erth Village Improvements EDG1704 or contact the clerk at; or phone 01736 757575.
