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.

A3047 from Blowinghouse to Tolgus Vean
- The 30mph speed limit remains in place on the A3047 from Blowinghouse Roundabout to Tolgus Vean Roundabout. This is a permanent reduction, allowing us to widen paths and cycle lanes.
- Traffic is now under contraflow with all vehicles utilising the westbound carriageway. This will be in place for around three months, after which time, the contraflow will change to the other lane.
- Major works are now underway on the westbound carriageway with the current focus on constructing the new surface-water drainage system. This will include excavation of trenches up to three metres deep, followed by the installation of bespoke drainage pipes that will then connect to the existing network at Tolgus Vean roundabout and Blowinghouse roundabout.
- The capping of the mineshaft is now in its final stages, expected to be complete next week. Once the surface is complete, you won’t even know it was there.
Walking and cycling
- The next stage of the walking and cycling path on Cardrew industrial estate is underway. This will eventually join the A3047 at Scorrier. It is hoped that this section will be complete by around mid-June.
