Transforming Truro's Boscawen St - 12 month trial from Monday 19 July

The Healthy Streets scheme aims to reduce traffic and pollution levels in Truro, create a better environment for all by allowing more space for pedestrians to move around comfortably, and make the city a thriving place for the future. 

We're part of the working group leading the Healthy Streets scheme, which includes representatives from Truro City Council and Cornwall Council. 

The first phase involves experimental 24 hour restrictions on through traffic entering Boscawen St, introduced on Monday 19 July for a 12 month trial. Access to Boscawen St is retained for emergency vehicles, buses, taxis, cycles and blue badge holders, and for loading and unloading.

How to feedback

The Healthy Streets team are inviting feedback from local residents and businesses on the trial and feedback will be used to shape plans for a permanent scheme. For more details, including FAQs and how to give feedback, see the Cornwall Council's Let's Talk Healthy Streets webpage.
