Trenching work to commence between new Progressive Recovery Unit and sub-station: Bus diversions planned

This page was last updated: October 15th, 2021

A Temporary Traffic Management Plan is being put in place on the Royal Cornwall Hospital site from Monday 2nd August. It will affect the section of road between the Postgraduate Centre and around the corner adjacent to the Princess Alexander Wing for the next seven week. This is to enable trenching and cabling works to install and connect underground services from the sub-station to the new Progressive Recovery Unit (PRU) which is currently under construction between the Tower Block and Princess Alexandra Wing.
The plan includes single lane restrictions for vehicles approaching the junction at certain times, as well as some bus service diversions, whilst the work is carried out in sections. The small consultants’ car park adjacent to the Postgraduate Centre will also be closed for the duration of the works. Pedestrian access will be maintained with temporary pathways put in place, and any temporary closure of accessible parking bays outside the Princess Alexander Wing will be minimised.
Bus diversions will be in place for three of the seven weeks: for one week commencing 9th August and then for two weeks commencing 6th and 13th September. At these times, all bus services including the Park & Ride will be diverted to stop outside the Trelawny Wing entrance.

The work programme is due to be completed by Sunday 19th September with usual services resumed and the car park re-opened from Monday 20th September.
