CPIR Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Walking and cycling are two of the most promising activities for addressing the current environmental challenges, promoting healthy lifestyles and ensuring a sustainable future for the generations to come. The Government’s ambition is to make walking and cycling the natural choices, not only for shorter journeys, but also for longer journeys with the combination of other modes of transportation. Furthermore, transforming local areas in ways that support active travel will reduce congestion, improve physical and mental health and support local economies, aligning with the Government’s sustainable vision.

Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIP) have been developed by the Department for Transport (DfT) for local and regional authorities to take a strategic approach in improving walking and cycling infrastructure and encourage a shift away from motorised vehicles.

The three key outputs of an LCWIP are:

  • a network plan for walking and cycling, which identifies preferred routes and core zones
  • a prioritised programme of infrastructure improvements for future investment, and
  • a report which sets out the underlying analysis carried out and provides a narrative which supports the identified improvements and network.

Cornwall Council have secured state funding as part of the Local Authority Capability Fund to support the commitments made in the Government’s Cycling and Walking Plan. AECOM are supporting Cornwall Council and Cormac in developing separate LCWIPs for the following areas:

  • Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth (CPIR),
  • Falmouth & Penryn,
  • Newquay, and
  • Penzance & Newlyn.

The identified core walking zones

4 months

Core Walking Zones (CWZ) are identified in areas where the need to increase permeability and improve safety for pedestrians is essential. Four such CWZ were identified in CPIR:

  • Camborne Town Centre,
  • The area around Cornwall College,
  • Barncoose Industrial Estate and,
  • Redruth Town Centre.

Please note that consideration of infrastructure and townscape improvements do not form part of this stage and will be considered after the confirmation of the routes.

Have your say

What is your opinion on these core walking zones? Please use the pins to comment on shown CWZ or propose alternative CWZs. To edit the location or comment associated with a pin, click on the vertical ellipsis.

We welcome your views on their location and size, here are some feedback examples:

The full walking network

4 months

Eight walking routes were identified across CPIR, with the aim to create a cohesive and continuous walking network that links key destinations in the four towns.

These walking routes are not definite at this point, and your feedback will help us improve their alignment in order to propose a network that will best suit the towns' everyday needs.

Have your say

We welcome your views on these routes, here are some feedback examples:

  • The route could make use of X active travel scheme that is planned to run along X, Y, Z roads.
  • This route feels unsafe because…
  • Instead of running along X road, the route could be aligned along Y road, because it is, e.g., wider, safer and currently preferred by locals.

We are especially interested in knowing whether you agree with the alignment they follow, the roads they run along or whether you think there is a better alternative route we should be investigating.

Please use the pins to log your comments on specific parts of the routes and include the name of the route in each of your comment, e.g., W02 - The route could make use of X active travel scheme that is planned to run along X, Y, Z roads.

Route Descriptions

W01: This route is a key circular route which connects Camborne train station with the Camborne Science and International Academy and Camborne Town Centre. This route follows Trelowarren Street, along Church Street, Rectory Road and Crane Road and Manor Road. This is intended to provide access to Camborne Science and International Academy from the town centre. The southern loop of W01 follows South Terrace, Pendarves Road taking Tregenna Lane through Camborne Park- which is primarily a quieter off-road route.

W02: This route connects Camborne train station to Duchy College and onto Pendarves Street. W02 connects to W01 and W03 to create a continuous walking route network across Camborne. From Camborne train station, this route follows Cross Street, Chapel Street and onto Fore Street, where it picks up Tehidy Road (here it diverts north to provide access to and from Duchy College). The route picks up Enys Road and Boiler Works Road, North Roskear Road where it connects to W03 on Pendarves Street.

W03: This route creates a direct connection between Camborne town centre and Cornwall College, connecting to W03 and W06. This route follows Trelowarren Street, directly up Wesley Street, Roskear, Pendarves Street and onto East Hill. This route provides access directly to Cornwall College from Tolvaddon Road and through Cornwall College Campus where finally it connects onto Trevenson Road. This route also connects to the Great Flat Lode Trail where it intersects on East Hill.

W04: This route connects Camborne to Pool. This route connects to W03 which goes on to connect to Camborne town centre, W05 and W06. This route follows Dolcoath Road, Kerrier Way, Dundance Lane and onto Station Road where it connects to Fore Street. It provides a slightly longer route which has the aim of providing access to the industrial clusters in Pool and future site allocations- it also offers a walking route which does not follow the busier route of W03.

W05: This route is a north-south route which connects Trevenson to Pool, connecting to W03 and W04. This route follows Tolvaddon Road over the A30, following an unnamed road to where it connects to Mount Whistle Road. The road follows Mount Whistle Road which connects to an unnamed road which crosses the A30 further east than the crossing point which uses the Interchange. Finally, this route follows Church Road where it connects to W05. W05 also connects to the Great Flat Lode Trail on the east and west side of the loop which also then provides a direct walking route across Pool, without the need to cross into Tolvaddon.

W06: This route connects Pool to Redruth along the spine of CPIR, connecting to W03, W04, W05, W07 and W08. It follows Trevenson Road which becomes Agar Road and finally Barncoose Terrace. This route connects to footpaths on Barncoose Terrace which also extend north across the A30- these safe access routes contribute to a cohesive network between the towns and crucially, across the A30.

W07: This route is a key north-south route which provides direct access between Pool to Illogan. It follows Chariot Road, Higher Broad Lane (where it crosses the A30) and onto Broad Lane before following Lower Broad Lane. The western loop follows Paynters Lane, Treverly Road and onto Basset Road. The eastern side of the loop follows Richard’s Lane where it connects back onto Lower Broad Lane.

W08: This route is a key circular route around Redruth town centre. It connects to the footpath which provides access to Redruth school- contributing to a continuous walking network across the town by providing access to the school, train station and retail area. The route connects to W07. The northern side of this route follows the A3047 to Tolgus Vean, and onto Tolgus Hill. The route follows Foundary Row and Chapel Street where it connects to West End. The southern section of this loop continues along Blowinghouse Hill, to West End. The eastern loop of W08 comes off Foundry Row onto Nettle Hill, New Cut and south on Green Lane. Finally, the loop connects Redruth station via Station Road and Fore Street.
