Water Lane Consultation

March 10th 2021

Cormac Solutions Ltd, on behalf of Cornwall Council, is inviting comments on a proposal for an informal crossing on Water Lane, Hayle. The proposed scheme consists of the construction of 2 symmetrical build-outs to reduce the crossing distance and reduce speed through the area.

The CNP for St. Erth is concerned that pedestrians wishing to cross from Tolver Close, on the southern side of the carriageway, would have difficulty crossing the carriageway to walk towards Hayle town. Due to site constraints a pedestrian refuge is not viable, therefore road narrowing is proposed.

The purpose of the scheme is to provide pedestrians with a safe crossing point, while simultaneously reducing speeds in the immediate area.

The public consultation runs for four weeks from 11th March until 9th April and details & drawings for these proposals can be found on the Cornwall Council website.

If you would like any further information relating to this consultation please contact either traffic@cormacltd.co.uk quoting St Erth Village Improvements EDG1841 or contact the clerk at clerk@sterth-pc.gov.uk or phone 01736 757575.
