Roche Fore Street resurfacing
The reconstruction and resurfacing of the B3274 Fore Street in Roche started on Monday 19 February.
However, owing to the impacts of Storm Emma and the Beast from the East weather front, resurfacing will continue this week until completion, currently expected to be Wedensday, 7 March. Work on the Fore Street/Edgcumbe Road roundabout and the sections of roads leading to it will now start Monday 12 March for approximately five nights, starting at 7pm. This means that the 24-hour road closure, will remain in place for an additional week.
The Fore Street closure is from St Gomonda’s Church up to the junction with Harmony Road. The work is part of Cormac’s surfacing and maintenance programme and will involve much needed reconstruction of the busy main road. Some parts of the road will be excavated to depths of half a metre, which makes it too dangerous to open up for any duration while works are taking place.
Some level of disruption is sadly unavoidable, but we will do our utmost to minimise impacts for all concerned.
Signage will be in place at major junctions of key routes to take non-through traffic away from the village, and diversions for local traffic will maintain access for residents and businesses.
During the closures, there will be no through traffic and all HGVs will be directed along the A30 or A391. For timetables and any changes to bus services, please monitor www.firstkernow.com or www.traveline.info
