Village Highways Improvements Delay

February 04th 2022

We had all been expecting work to start this month to implement the Village Improvements scheme that was approved last year to introduce a village wide 20mph zone and traffic calming features, 30mph speed limit along Treloweth Lane & Chenhalls Road and other associated highways works.  Unfortunately we have just learned that we have to wait a little longer for the work to be completed due to the need for Cormac to complete other works elsewhere in the county.  We have been assured by Cornwall Council that the funding for the project is secured and that ‘We are 100% committed to deliver this scheme which is rescheduled to start in August.’ 

The Parish Council has raised concerns regarding the new start date and have been advised as follows: ‘The work on Treloweth Lane is scheduled for 5 September after the school holidays, but work around the School will be carried out during the school holidays.  The roads in St Erth are not included in the County Council’s seasonal embargos and there is a need to utilise these periods when the network is deemed available to ensure the workforce is fully employed.  The actual time a road is closed for will be kept to a minimum and, as long as it is safe / there is no work being carried out, closures will be taken off overnight and weekends.  Therefore all roads will not be closed for the full duration of the road space bookings.’  

Once we have more detail on road closure dates from Cornwall Council we will update residents.
