Bodmin Traffic Plans On Hold
9:34am 5th December 2014
Plans to pedestrianise Bodmin town centre have been put on hold.
Fore Street was going to be cut off to traffic for a trial period in the new year, as part of plans to overhaul access.
It is also to try to attract more shoppers.
But now officials say they want the new road layout finished first.
A spokesperson for Cornwall Council said: "Locally, there have been long-term aspirations to trial the part pedestrianisation of Fore Street (between 10am and 4pm) to improve the conditions for pedestrians shopping and enjoying the facilities the street has to offer.
"The trial was originally due to commence in January 2015. However, it has been agreed with local Members, Bodmin Town Council and Better Bodmin, that a more appropriate time to commence the trial needs to be considered to ensure it works well for the town as a whole.
"It is felt that January may not offer the best opportunity when trade can typically be quieter, and it would be prudent to commence the roll out of the trial in conjunction with the delivery of the Camel Trail extension, which is set to bring high levels of walkers and cyclists into Bodmin town centre in the near future."
