Truro to Threemilestone shared paths

A shared use pathway for walking and cycling now runs next to most of the A390 between Truro and Threemilestone.

This provides a safe walking and cycling route which offers a traffic-free alternative to driving, making it easier to switch from car journeys to a healthier and more environmentally friendly option.

Starting at Dalvenie roundabout, next to County Hall, it extends to Maiden Green roundabout, next to Truro College, and continues on to Threemilestone, with a quieter route available via the Malabar estate.

Crossing points for cyclists and pedestrians are provided along the route and it’s signposted and lit throughout.

The network of paths provide a direct, accessible and safe walking and cycling alternative to vehicle use for local trips to work, school and college. This helps to reduce congestion, improve journey reliability and boost the local economy.

By reducing the number of local car journeys, this benefits personal health and local air quality conditions.

The pavement routes link with existing on and off-road cycle networks in the area, including the Coosebean Greenway route to the city centre, which starts near the golf club on the A390. This signed route from the city goes via St Georges Road and Coosebean Lane and skirts the Malabar estate. It can also be accessed via the train station-using the pedestrian footbridge.

The Newham trail also links to the A390 and can be accessed via the signed public footpath at the side of the registry office by County Hall. This flat, two mile walking and cycling route follows the old Newham railway line and links to Newham Road.

Details of the route are available on the Truro Active Travel map below. 

The map also has information about other cycle and walking routes in Truro, and public transport in the city.
