Callywith Gate

 

This project has delivered a new roundabout built just off the A30 at Callywith. This will help cater for demand from the new Truro and Penwith College campus. It also provides access to existing and future developments at Callywith Gate allocated through the Local Plan.

The scheme also encourages drivers leaving the A30 to reduce their speed along Launceston Road. The scheme has also improved access for pedestrians and cyclists. You can read more about the details of the project.

The benefits of the design of the new roundabout included:

  • A safer environment for all road users. Speed limits were altered along the A38 Launceston Road. The 40mph speed limit was extended and a new 30mph speed limit in the roads leading to and from the roundabout.
  • Improved cycle and pedestrian facilities. New footways link to the existing shared pedestrian and cycle facilities on the A38, and provide a crossing point on Launceston Road.
  • A new sustainable drainage system. This takes water from the carriageway into purpose-built water reserves, rather than into sewer systems.

Mark Wardle, Callywith College principal designate, said: “The staff at Callywith College are delighted that construction of the new roundabout at Callywith in Bodmin is to get underway. The roundabout is a vital transport cog in the college’s surrounding infrastructure and as well as easing traffic flows for Bodmin residents and visitors will play an essential part in our goal of improving access to quality education for the young people of Cornwall.”
