The £87m road has provisional funding from the Government and funding from Cornwall Council.

Complementary traffic management measures in surrounding villages and roads will be built once the link road is open. These may include:

  • HGV restrictions
  • widening footways, and
  • traffic calming to prevent through traffic

Work has been continuing on the detailed design of the route and the ecological surveys.  These are required to discharge all of the pre-start planning conditions.

The final amendments to the Full Business Case are being made. They will be issued to the Department of Transport shortly.

At the end of July / beginning of August, the site will start to take shape.  

A copy of our latest newsletter is now available.  We hope you find it interesting.
