Newquay Growth Area: Current Highway Network and Transport Strategy

A master plan for the area was approved by the Portfolio Holder for Housing and Planning in June 2011. This is included as a key area for growth in Cornwall’s Local Plan. The Newquay Strategic Route underpins the masterplan. It unlocks the site for its full development potential. 

The Rialton Link in the north east was completed in 2015. Phase 1 to the south from Hendra was completed in November 2016. The Duchy of Cornwall is building the route from the east from William Hosking Way.

The Council has secured significant developer contributions towards the remainder of the scheme. We are seeking to secure government grant funding to help close the funding gap. The final phases (phases 2 & 3) will take the route from Phase 1 over the railway and stream to meet with the eastern link and the proposed future western arm to Trevenson Road. Subject to funding, it is hoped that scheme will be delivered by the ealry 2024.

Once complete the route will:

  • unlock the entire site for housing and employment development
  • alleviate traffic congestion on the surrounding network
  • improve overall journey times

It will also make good provision for sustainable modes of transport by:

  • hosting regular bus services
  • providing dedicated walking and cycling routes
  • providing bus shelters with real time information
