Chyvelah Road Bus Gate

The junction of the A390 westbound and Chyvelah Road Threemilestone (near the Maplins store) was identified as one of the schemes for early implementation within this programme of work.

The junction previously allowed vehicles heading west to exit the A390 into Threemilestone but prevented vehicles travelling east from joining the A390 at this point - instead all vehicles had to travel west to the Threemilestone roundabout around 800m away.

The scheme has created a dedicated bus link, with a break in the central reservation on the A390 and traffic signal control, to allow buses heading towards Truro to join the A390 without having to double back to the Threemilestone roundabout.

The bus gate will reduce eastbound journey times for buses and improve timetable reliability, benefiting between 1,300 and 1,500 bus passengers every day. 

The bus gate opened for use on 16 March 2017.
