The new A390 Tresillian cycle route to Truro, celebrated its opening this week with the two local Cornwall Councillors getting on a tandem bicycle on the new cycleway. Cllr Mike Eathorn-Gibbons for Ladock, St Clement and St Erme, and Cllr Bob Egerton for Probus, Tregony and Grampound, were joined by a group of students from Penair School. The students then cycled along the new 1.5km cycleway to Tresillian with an officer from Sustrans; the charity which helps people to travel more journeys by foot, bike or public transport.
The Tresillian cycle route runs from Tresillian village to the new Tregurra park and ride site on the east of Truro. The route runs through the park and ride, on a designated path for cyclists and pedestrians, to the Newquay Road (A39) junction; linking cyclists to the existing cycle network. Cyclists continuing their journeys to Truro can cross the A39 Newquay Road and continue along Tregurra Lane to the city centre. For onward journeys towards the colleges, schools, hospital and Threemilestone, cyclists can follow signs for the Coosebean cycle path.
Cornwall Council Portfolio Holder for Transport Bert Biscoe, said: “Slowly but surely this comprehensive and major scheme, which include Langarth park and ride, the Falmouth – Truro branch ride and the eastern park and ride is coming together to manage transport into and out of Truro.”
Mike Eathorn-Gibbons said, “This is a start for improved cycleways. I shall now be pressing for a cycle route from Trispen to Truro.”
Bob Egerton added, “I’m really pleased that this has been implemented as part of the park and ride project. This is the sort of thing we need to do to encourage people to consider alternative means of transport.”
Zac Hocking, student at Penair School said about the cycle route; “it’s a more accessible and safer route for people to get to their jobs and schools.”
The new cycle route was part of the planning condition on the Tregurra park and ride site. Additional significant Government funding to promote walking and cycling along the A390 Highertown corridor is being provided by the Local Enterprise Partnership starting in September 2016. Along with critical improvements to road junctions, these improvements for cyclists form part of the Truro Transport Strategy. This strategy focuses on providing better opportunities to make some journeys by bus, cycle or on foot; to help meet the growing numbers of people travelling into and within Truro in the future.
The cycle route which delivers the cycle and pedestrian strategy for this part of the highway network, is costing approximately £700,000, and has been funded through Local Transport Plan funding. This is funding allocated from Central Government to deliver new local transport infrastructure that cannot be used for any other type of works.
A 45-year-old man sustained serious injuries to his face after he was assaulted in Glen Parva at the weekend.
The victim was walking along Woodbank towards Lutterworth Road around 10.55pm on Saturday (21 May) when he was approached by a group of men and hit from behind.
He was left unconscious. He sustained multiple fractures to his face and was discharged from hospital after treatment but will require major surgery in the future.
From enquiries conducted so far it’s believed that a silver 54 registration plate Ford Fiesta may have been seen in the area and there were others who witnessed the incident.
It’s believed that prior to the incident a group of men tried to enter a house party nearby and were denied access, this may be linked to the subsequent assault.
If you witnessed the assault or the events leading up to it then please get in touch. Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC 4010 Louise Osborne on 101, quoting incident 127486.

Leicestershire Police has had over £4,000 worth of New Psychoactive Substances (NPS) handed in to them on the day that a new act came into force making supply of the substances a criminal offence carrying a sentence of up to 7 years.
Novel or new psychoactive substances (NPS) are commonly referred to as legal highs, which is used as a term for products that mimic the effects of controlled drugs. They have been linked to a rise in violence, antisocial behaviour, physical and mental health issues, and even deaths.
Officers visited head shops, the name used to describe shops that sell the drugs, ahead of the changes in legislation to discuss what the new law meant to them and the penalties involved if they ignored it. Officers will now monitor the shops to make sure that the products have been removed from sale.
The drugs were handed in voluntarily to Operation Nitrox officers this morning by a city centre based head shop. Operation Nitrox targets NPS by information collection, education and enforcement activity.
PC Matt Rowlatt from the Criminal Justice Drugs Team said: “This is a great step forward in our bid to get NPS off our streets. The term ‘legal high’ could give the impression that these substances are not as dangerous as controlled drugs. Users never really know exactly what is in the drugs that they are taking and the effects can be life changing”.
For further information on legal highs and the new laws around selling or producing them please visit the Frank website.
If you suspect that a shop or individual is selling, dealing or producing legal highs, please call Leicestershire Police on 101.
