Cornwall County’s Street Gazetteer contains details of which roads are Traffic Sensitive.

In addition to the day to day sensitivity restrictions there are some roads in Cornwall that will be subject to seasonal embargos. The routes are marked on Cornwall Council's interactive mapping.

Further information on traffic sensitivity in Cornwall can be found by visiting One Network. When visiting One Network please follow the instructions below: 

  • Click on 'customise my map' on the left hand side
  • Enable the 'NSG' option under the 'Operational Info' section
  • Zooming in on the road you would like to examine will cause a blue line to appear on the road.
  • When clicking on the blue line it will display a hyperlinked USRN code
  • The road sensitivity can then be found under the 'Special Designation' header.

For further information please contact the street works team on 0300 1234 222 or email
