More houses – less traffic?

From the ‘It’s Our Cornwall’ page.

Wizardry at Truro. According to INOX, once the new spine road is complete from their 1,500 house suburb at Langarth through the 435 houses at Willow Green and then the 515 houses at Maiden Green, this will ‘promote a sustainable flow of traffic by relieving a significant section of the A390’. Really? Even with the extra 2,500+ cars this building frenzy will spew onto the roads?

This would work if the people living in the new housing plan to just drive up and down the spine road and not venture onto the rest of the road network – which is unlikely!

In reality the new car owners will travel to Truro and points north and east and west along the A390. More traffic and more congestion.
