Work on Penzance park and ride underway
Works have begun on a park and ride in Penzance on the site next to Sainsbury’s on the town’s outskirts.
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.
Andrew Berryman, CORMAC project manager, said: “This is a straight-forward build that we expect to be able to undertake with a minimum of disruption to motorists, visitors, businesses and residents."
The development is being carried out as part of a £1.2million section 106 planning contribution agreed between Cornwall Council and Sainsbury’s.
Although a small scheme, the engineering demands mean a range of materials will be delivered over a two month period. This is not expected to have an impact on traffic flows on the surrounding roads or the roundabout.
For three weeks at the start of construction 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.
In the unlikely event of any traffic disruption caused by the works, we will provide updates on our website and via our social media channels.
