Road works due in May '22

Update - 27 May 2022

The actual road improvements in Mabe have differed from the plans originally consulted on.  See the attachments for a letter from Cornwall Council explaining the changes, and the revised drawings.

20mph speed limit and traffic calming - road safety improvements for Mabe

Mabe Parish Council has campaigned for a number of years, calling for the issues of speed and volume of traffic through the village to be addressed. Cornwall Council responded to this by asking Cormac Solutions to draw up proposals to help regulate traffic speeds and to include traffic calming features which aim to make the village roads safer for pedestrians and less appealing to motorists seeking a quick and easy short-cut.

Following a recent public consultation, Cornwall Council will carry out works which include:

- provision of two buildouts, one on Antron Hill and one on Church Road

 - a series of speed cushions throughout the village, designed to support the introduction of a reduced speed limit 

 - reduced speed limit of 20mph to be applied to all roads leading into the centre of the village

 - the 30mph speed limit at the western end of Antron Hill will be extended, to support the 20mph zone

 - a section of 'no waiting at any time' restrictions are being proposed at the Antron Way / Church Road junction to help improve the traffic flow in this area which often suffers from congestion as traffic backs up and blocks the junction area.

Note that these works have been in the pipeline for a number of years and it is the combined efforts of parish councillors, Cornwall Council ward members and the Highways service that has led to the works due to be carried out now.
