The other element of the Redruth transport proposals is to make it easier to join the link road rather than use the existing Redruth to Pool road. It seems when given a choice lots of motorists still use the old road. Now the idea is to
force encourage them to use the link road.
But there is probably a good reason why people use the ‘old’ road.
1) Lots of people live in areas served by the road, they will still want to get about.
2) Its the best route if you want to visit the supermarkets at Pool or get to Cornwall College from Redruth.
But there are also proposals to increase walking and cycling! How many people will be able to or want to walk or cycle to work or shop? We will answer that question at a later date!
