Advance warning of evening lane restrictions on Tregolls Road, Truro on Wednesday 30 January

Lane restrictions will be in place along a section of Tregolls Road in Truro from 7pm on Wednesday 30 January as tree surgeons work to remove a large tree from the central reservation.

CORMAC’s arboricultural officers, working on behalf of Cornwall Council, discovered brackets of a decay fungus on the mature Eucalyptus and further investigation identified decay within the lower stem. As a result of the tree’s condition, there is an increased risk of it falling into the road. To allow the tree surgeons to safely dismantle and remove the tree, Tregolls Road will be reduced to one lane in either direction.

Cornwall Council’s Tree Safety Officer Matthew Odgers-Brown said: “This prominent tree makes a significant contribution to the local landscape and it is with great regret that we have to remove it. However, public safety must be our priority. We intend to plant a replacement tree as near to this location as underground services permit and are also planning to plant new street trees within verge at the Chellew Road junction. We apologise for any inconvenience caused while we carry out these works – we will remove the lane restrictions as soon as we have completed the work to dismantle and remove the tree.”
