St Erth Multi Modal Hub

The project at St Erth station has delivered more car parking and bus and road improvements. This is to help more people switch from car to the bus, the train or walking and cycling. This will help improve access for everyone to:

  • work
  • education
  • shops
  • services

It will also help reduce congestion on the roads.

This project complements improvements to signalling delivered in 2019.  The extra signals mean that there is now a half hour train service on the mainline.

The project is funded by a grant of £5.4m from

  • the European Regional Development Fund
  • the Cornwall Council Local Transport Plan
  • Growth Deal funding provided by Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership

Network Rail and GWR have also delivered projects which will also bring benefits to the area.
