Towards the end of May, it was announced that Gas works in Ponsanooth could take a minimum of 10 months with road closures in place.
Wales & West Utilities says the work, which started on 2nd June, is essential to keep the gas flowing safely to heat and power local homes and businesses. The company also stated that barring any engineering difficulties, the work will finish in March next year.
Wales & West Utilities has worked closely with Cornwall Council to plan the scheme and it has been agreed that traffic management, including traffic lights and localised road closures, will be in use throughout. Road closures and diversion routes will be clearly signposted.
Nub News has contacted the company to get more details on the road closures, Here are the current traffic management plans, barring any engineering difficulties:
- Between 2 June and 21 July, a road closure will be in place on the Road from Sunny Corner.
- Between 14 July and 6 October, a road closure will be in place on Tresamble Hill.
- Between October and December, rolling traffic lights will be in place on the A393 between Pelean Cross and Park Road.
Further road closures will be in place between January 2024 and April 2024, with road closures on Commercial Hill and Speech Lane to Higher Pasco. Diversion routes will be clearly signposted, and motorists are advised to allow extra time for travel.
