A39 Falmouth Gateway - Treluswell Roundabout
The Treluswell roundabout is the meeting point for roads from Penryn, Falmouth, Truro and Redruth and will struggle to cope in its current capacity as Falmouth docks and the university expand. By reducing the current double mini roundabout layout into one larger one, Falmouth and Penryn will be opened up to greater investment both in terms of employment and jobs.
The A39 Falmouth Gateway - Treluswell Roundabout scheme was named as part of the first round of Growth Deal funding announced in July 2014.
The package is made up of two elements;
- Treluswell development from two roundabouts to one
- Penvale Villas access improvements
The total budget for the works due to take place is £2.9m and is made up of a combination of Department for Transport (DFT) Pinchpoint funding, Strategic Economic Plan (SEP) Growth Deal and Section 106 funding.

The original entrance to Penvale Villas is poorly located and entry or exit has been hazardous for both residents and passing drivers. The quality of life for the residents at Penvale Villas has been dramatically restricted for residents by both the A39 and the lack of access to their homes. The Royal Mail has ceased deliveries on safety grounds and residents are unable to park near their homes. The first part of the programme will build an access road to ensure safer access to the road network for residents, remove a hazard for passing motorists and to grant access for important services.
