Two week overnight traffic ban plan for Penryn roadworks
11:00am Friday 18th October 2013 in News
Traffic will be banned from Penryn town centre for 12 hours overnight for a fortnight when resurfacing work is carried out.
The work is due to start on October 28 and expected to take until November 12 to complete. During that time road closure orders will be in place from 7pm until 7am in Lower Market Street, Higher Market Street, Broad Street, Quay Hill and Helston Road.
While the work will be carried out overnight to minimise disruption, the noisiest activities will be restricted to before 11pm to avoid too much disturbance for those living in the area.
Penryn town clerk, Michelle Davey, said: “Of course, we welcome the resurfacing of the town centre as there are numerous potholes causing concern, especially around some of the speed cushions, but it’s clear that the closure of the roads, even at night, will cause difficulties with the movement of traffic. I have spoken with Cormac regarding the access to residential properties, particularly in Saracen, and have been advised that arrangements will be in place to allow vehicles to access side streets during the closures.
“The town council asks that drivers be extra patient and considerate during this period to avoid any extra congestion, particularly at junctions.”
Full details of the road closures, including maps, are available on the news page of Penryn Town Council’s website, www.penryntowncouncil.co.uk.
