Speed limits in Porthleven reduced

First published in Helston

The speed limit on the roads in and out of Porthleven is to be reduced after getting an overwhelming thumbs up from drivers and authorities alike.

Cornwall Councillor Andy Wallis, who represents the Porthleven and Helston south division, said consultation on changing the limit from 60mph to 40mph had now ended and there was “an overwhelming response in favour.”

He told Helston’s town councillors last week that the limit would affect the main road to the port from Helston, as well as the entrance from the Penzance road via Stopgate.

Mr Wallis estimated the changes would take place within the next six months.
