Treyew Road Truro

You may be aware that construction of the new LIDL store off Treyew Road in Truro is now underway. Cornwall Council have appointed Cormac to carry out the associated Section 278 works which are due to commence on 10 January 2022. It is anticipated that our works will take us to around the middle of April.

The work includes construction of two new entrances off the highway, into what is now the football club site. We’ll carry out utility connections and highway works to facilitate both the entrances, as well as the anticipated increase in traffic flow. We will also realign the junction in to Penweathers, improve the footways and drainage, create new pedestrian crossings, and carry out improvements and landscaping to the central splitter island. This will be followed by the final resurfacing in early April.

The works will be completed in phases with some daytime and some night-time work. We have outlined the programme of work and associated traffic management on the attached sheet and included a general arrangement drawing for your information. Please do feel free to share this information as you see fit. We have sent a letter to the residents of Treyew Road and Penweathers Lane, which they should receive early next week.

If you have any queries or concerns, or would like to speak to someone about this, please call 0300 1234 222 or email us at In the meantime, may I take this opportunity to wish you all a very safe and happy Christmas 2021.

Update 14/04/2022

We wanted to let you know what’s coming up in the next phase of the Treyew Road Section 278 works, that we’re carrying out on behalf of Cornwall Council.

From Monday 25 April we will begin a period of night shift working, which is expected to last up to two weeks. It is not possible to carry out these particular works safely without closing sections of the A390, and as such we are not permitted to do so during the daytime. Two-way traffic lights will be in place and begin at 7pm and complete the following morning by 5am. Access for both residents and emergency vehicles, will be maintained at all times.

Additionally, three-way traffic lights will be needed at the top of Daniel Road for a period of one week, whilst a utility crossing is installed from the footway over to the new site. These will be removed during the daytime.

Some operations will include excavation, removal of the surface of the road, and resurfacing.  These are unfortunately quite noisy processes, and it is possible those nearby may experience some disruption. We will do our best to keep all noise to a minimum where possible and will stop works deemed significantly noisy at 11pm.

Please be assured that we will do our best to carry out these works with as little disturbance to you as possible. If you do have any queries or concerns, or would like to speak to someone about this, please call 0300 1234 222 or email us at
