Changes to Highways Improvements

September 14th 2022

We have this week been informed by Cormac of some changes to the work that is currently taking place to introduce a village wide 20mph zone as follows:

  • The junction of Tredrea Lane and Chenhalls Road will be treated with an “imprint” surface, without ramps.  During the detailed design that followed the public consultation, we discovered that we would have difficulty installing satisfactory drainage to prevent water from ponding at the foot of the ramps.  So we opted instead for a design where surface levels remain more or less the same as they are now, thereby avoiding ponding issues on the carriageway.  Imprint paving has the same appearance and texture as brick paving and its distinctive surface will still play a key role in reducing speeds in this part of the village.
  • We are no longer proposing marked parking bays on Tredrea Lane.  Where there are no yellow lines, it remains the driver’s responsibility to decide where it is safe and appropriate to park.
  • We are constructing a footway across the entrance of the Methodist Church car park, to bring pedestrians safely to a point where they can cross the road to the “virtual” footway on the other side.
