Hear about the A390 highways improvements at the Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel meeting

Local people are being invited to hear about the A390 Truro Western Corridor highways package at the Truro and Roseland Community Network Panel meeting on Tuesday 18 July. This highways package, which includes improvements to the Threemilestone Roundabout and the Arch Hill Junction, aims to help ease traffic flow along the A390. Scheduled to be delivered by the end of 2018, the scheme will address congestion from the daily estimated 18,000 commuter trips into Truro; and support plans for new homes and new job opportunities in Truro. 

At the meeting Jerry Cobb from Cormac solutions will be coming along to brief the panel on the A390 improvements, and this will include an update on proposals for Arch Hill Roundabout. The newly appointed Portfolio Holder for Transport, Councillor Geoff Brown will also be coming along to the meeting. For more details on the scheme, including a short film and how the scheme helps to encourage sustainable transport, visit www.cornwall.gov.uk/a390truro.

Mark O’Brien the Community Link Officer for the area will give an update on other relevant matters. This month the panel will be brought up to date on the Electoral Review, which aims to deliver electoral equality across the local authority so that all councillors represent a similar number of voters. Plus there’ll be information on the Cornwall Councillor Community Chest; a small grant allocated to each Councillor to help fund projects or activities run by voluntary and community groups in the Cornwall Council area they represent. Details of these can be found on the Cornwall Council electoral review page and http://www.cornwall.gov.uk/communitychest.

Chair for the panel, Truro City Councillor Chris Wells said: “This is a really good opportunity for people to hear about local matters including the progress on the A390 Truro Western Corridor highways scheme. Everyone’s welcome to the meeting and those who come along will have the opportunity to meet their local, parish, city and Cornwall Councillors and ask questions.”

The Truro and Roseland Panel meets bi-monthly to discuss matters that affect the local area and to agree priorities that can be delivered by Cornwall Council and its partners such as the police and health services.

Some of the areas that community networks focus on include anti-social behaviour, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highway issues.
