A road closure in Helston is due to be in place for the next week.

Traffic will not be able to use Penhellaz Hill due to the road being closed between the junctions of St Johns Close and the Tubben. In practice this also prevents any through traffic from Cross Street to Penzance Road.

The road closure is due to be in place until Thursday next week, April 18, and is for ground investigations and clearance of vegetation.

It will be in operation 24 hours a day, including weekends, with pedestrian and vehicle access for residents and businesses maintained.
