Once complete, the Multi-Modal Hub will: 

  • Act as a catalyst for economic growth
  • Increase the potential for car-free travel
  • Improve the interconnectivity of different modes of transport
  • Improve safety for all road users
  • Good access, just off the A30
  • A large site, with potential for expansion
  • Served by bus and rail (main and branch line services)
  • Regeneration of brownfield land
  • Low environmental impact
  • Potential to serve Penzance, Hayle, St Ives, Camborne and beyond

There is an existing train station immediately off the A30. Given this quick and easy access, the current train station is the most logical location to construct this project

 The current bus stops will be moved from the A30 into the grounds of the train station. Further information on future timetables will be available at a later date

All rail services on the main line and branch line will not be disrupted due to construction of the Multi-Modal Hub.

Disabled parking bays are provided in the North and South car parks within close proximity of the Station building. Access provisions such as shallow graded walkways and footpaths are to be provided. There will also be a pedestrian ramp connecting the South car park to the Station platform.

Clearly-signed, safe pedestrian routes will facilitate movement through the site. Provision will also be made for cyclists.

Facilities are being implemented to include charging points in the North and South car park.

We appreciate that providing an accessible bridge is a key improvement that would benefit a range of rail users. This is especially true of passengers with mobility issues. We are actively working with our partners Network Rail (Asset Owner) and Great Western Railway (Franchisee) to discuss the viability of implementing this improvement.

There have been issues in securing the required land for a continuous physical footway. We are currently looking at options to provide a link between the village and the transport hub.

The redesign and signalisation of the junction between Station Approach and the A30 is intended to accommodate the peaks of traffic exiting the transport hub while improving safety.
The signals will allow traffic to safely join the A30 from the village and hub. It will enable some control over the flow entering the St Erth roundabout in a easterly direction.
