Overview

This event is part of a series of site visits to look at the new Northern Access Road (NAR) being constructed in Truro. The site consists of a new 4km new section of highway, shared footway and associated road highway features. Works are underway across the entire length of the NAR at various phases to allow attendees to witness many different phases of highway construction.

Two additional schemes are also being constructed within the NAR footprint and involve the construction of a new sports pitch for Truro with a club ground and playing field and the construction of a new energy centre which will look at improving energy supply to the surrounding areas.

The project is the first element of the wider Langarth Garden Village development connecting all of the development on the site and provide a route from the A390 through Langarth to the Royal Cornwall Hospital Treliske. The project includes the construction of 3.5km of new highway, footpath and cycleway and includes all drainage, utility, communications and the landscaping of the adjacent land corridor.

Join this guided tour to explore the ongoing NAR site as well a brief look at the newly constructed sports hub and energy center being constructed.
