Redruth Gateway


Redruth Gateway is part of the Redruth Strategic Employment Growth Package (RSEGP); a set of schemes designed to aid the growth and development of the Redruth area, both economically and environmentally. The scheme involves major works on the A3047 to Blowinghouse roundabout, and numerous walking and cycling schemes in the area.

To find out more about the package, please visit the Cornwall Council website.

Work updates

Last updated: Thursday 20 July

  • The drainage works to the eastbound carriageway are now completed and next week we will begin the installation of the new mains cable, which will power all the street lights on the eastbound carriageway.
  • Tarmac reinstatement is now underway, so that this lane can be reopened to the travelling public. We are aiming for week commencing 31 July.  
  • Works are now underway for the new footpath and drainage systems on the Blowinghouse roundabout. It’s anticipated that this will take approximately two months, with narrow lanes being installed on the approaches. Wherever possible, we aim to minimise delays and any works requiring traffic lights will be carried out after 6pm in the evening. 
  • One of the buildings on the Murdoch and Trevithick site remains in place. By law, we are not allowed to disturb nesting birds, so works will recommence at the end of the nesting season. 
  • The walking and cycling path will be completed at Cardrew Way at the end of this week. The team will then move to Mount Ambrose roundabout for footpath improvements, expected to take approximately two months.
  • In an effort to maintain traffic flow on this busy roundabout, we will have narrowed lanes in place for the majority of the day and where possible traffic lights will be in use in the evenings only.
