Cornwall’s Crealy Great Adventure Park has opened a new access road to reduce traffic congestion and travelling time.

The adventure park, near Wadebridge and Newquay, was previously only accessible through the small village of Tredinnick, but the new road will direct visitors straight to the park, avoiding the village.

Coined the “Tredinnick bypass”, the new road is 370 metres long and will shorten the travelling distance by approximately 1km. Visitors will now be able to access the park shortly after leaving the A39 without driving through narrow lanes around the village.

General manager, Simon Townsend, said: “We’re located in a beautiful rural location so the majority of our visitors travel to the park by car. As you can imagine, the village can become a little congested at busy periods.

“Now, visitors leave the A39 and follow the road before taking a turning on the left leads them directly to the park. Not only does this save time for our guests, but we’re confident that it will improve the area for the residents of Tredinnick.”

The investment in the new road is in addition to the installation of a 500 kWp wind turbine and a £300,000 spend on the park and new attraction Swampy and Dina Land this year.
