Mid Cornwall Rail Infrastructure Development Project


This investment worked on the creation of a feasibility study and the production of a pre-feasibility report to identify potential Convergence investments in the mid Cornwall rail network that would provide an enhanced north-south rail service between key towns in mid Cornwall.

The rationale behind the proposal was:

  • To provide a quicker more direct route between two towns with significant planned growth both for residents and visitors
  • To provide better opportunities for access to jobs and training by the residents of Newquay and some Clay villages.
  • And to provide opportunities for business enterprise stations in certain villages and create employment nodes close to Newquay and St Austell stations
