Many people in Trewoon have significant concerns about the safety of the community and road users using the A3058. The A3058 is a busy road providing a link between St Austell and Newquay.  The speed limit through Trewoon is 30mph, however, many road users exceed the speed limit. The village currently has three vehicle activated speed signs which fail to deter road users from speeding. As the DfT guidance suggests, speed cameras are located where speeding accidents have occurred and other safety measures have been considered; this is clearly the case in Trewoon.

Residents have previously raised concerns about the motorist's speed through Trewoon, to have little change introduced as a result. There is a growing concern amongst residents, as well as an increasing number of examples of incidents that have occurred resulting from dangerous driving through Trewoon. Examples include damage to property, death/injury to pets, and multiple near-miss incidents. Residents are currently being encouraged to report evidence of speeding being the cause of accident/incident/near-misses to St Mewan PC. Please email any evidence to clerk@stmewanparishcouncil.org.uk

Ensuring the 30mph speed limit is followed will also have an environmental impact by reducing CO2 emissions, noise, and vibration. It will also encourage healthy active lifestyles/individual wellbeing as residents will feel safer walking along the road. 

Average speed cameras are an efficient and cost-effective way of catching speeding drivers, which would be a suitable and justifiable solution for Trewoon. By monitoring the speed of drivers through the entire length of Trewoon will ensure the road is consistently being driven safely - day and night.
