Penzance park and ride


A new park and ride facility is being built on the outskirts of Penzance on the site of the old heliport, now Sainsbury's supermarket.

The park and ride will be accessed from Jelbert Way and will provide 169 car parking spaces, 11 disabled parking spaces and eight coach bays.

Work started on 20 February and, it is expected, will be complete by the end of the year.

The development is being carried out as part of a section 106 £1.2m planning contribution agreed between Cornwall Council and Sainsbury’s.

Work updates

  • For the first three weeks of construction (up to approximately 10 March), a small section of Jelbert Way will have the road lanes reduced in width.
  • Two way traffic will still be able to travel along Jelbert Way during this period.
  • Around 7,000 cubic metres of stone will be transported to the site from the nearby CORMAC quarry at Ludgvan over a two month period. This is not expected to have an impact on traffic flows on the surrounding roads or the nearby Chy-An-Mor roundabout.

In the unlikely event of any traffic disruption caused by the works, we will provide updates on this page and via our social media channels.
