Following the Public Consultation Cornwall Council have informed us:
Infra23-006 - Tregea Hill, Portreath
Overall, there was a mixture of responses received, with support for some elements of the scheme and objections to others. All comments were considered carefully before a final decision was made.
The main purpose of the scheme is to prevent inappropriate parking, promote active travel and ensure the safety of vulnerable road users, whilst maintaining adequate traffic flow. Therefore, it has been resolved to implement the scheme in an amended form.
The proposed cycle lane will not be progressed, however the provision of a no loading restriction will be extended up to and including the length of the highway safety barrier. This amendment is in line with the comments received during the consultation, suggesting that parking in this area causes the greatest risk to all road users, and that it is essential that carriageway width is maintained at this location. Please refer to the attached plan (Infra23-006_SN01_SAR) for details.
Our works programme indicates that construction will start on site on 1st February 2024. Please note that any new parking and speed restrictions will not come into effect until all the necessary works have been carried-out on site.
