Traffic lights on the main Culdrose Road will be in force next week for four days. 

From Monday, May 20 to Thursday, 23 traffic lights will be in operation on the A3083 Culdrose Road.

One lane will be closed to allow contractors to complete a section of a new security fence which runs directly under the bridge over the main road.

A spokesperson for RNAS Culdrose said: “We had hoped to avoid the use of temporary traffic lights as part of this ongoing project to replace the perimeter fence, but there is simply no alternative to complete this small section on one side of the road as it runs under the bridge.

“We’d like to thank people for their patience for the short time the lights will be in operation.”

The project to redevelop the land and fencing at RNAS Culdrose which began in January is a collaborative project between Defence Infrastructure, Navy Command Infrastructure, Vivo Defence Services Ltd and the RNAS Culdrose Infrastructure team.

Around 6,600 trees, shrubs and bushes will be planted as part of the major redevelopment at the Naval Air Base.

Captain Stuart Irwin, the commanding officer of RNAS Culdrose said at the time: “Our current perimeter fence is well past its best and has needed a replacement for some time.

“Aside from the security implications of protecting Culdrose, the generally poor appearance of the fence has been an annoyance to our personnel and the wider community, who are proud of the Royal Navy and rightly want the air station in a ship-shape condition.”
