Local Pinch Point Funding

Cornwall Council applied for Pinch Point funding early this year for two key junction improvement schemes, Treluswell, Penryn and Union Corner, Falmouth. The Department for Transport announced in May 2013 that the Union Corner bid had been successful and the Council would receive £1.6m towards the cost of the junction improvement.  Cornwall’s bid was one of 170 Local Authority bids totalling £400m competing for the Government fund worth £150m.  Unfortunately, Treluswell was not awarded Pinch Point funding on this occasion.   However, given that the current capacity at this junction could constrain future growth in Falmouth and Penryn, the Council will continue to seek opportunities for funding to deliver this important transport scheme for Cornwall.

The application forms and supporting documents to the Union Corner bid are provided below.
