Peace and goodwill will reign over Trafalgar Roundabout in Truro this Christmas as roadworks are suspended over the festive season. The works, to improve the road and utility network, will stop on Friday 21 December and restart on Monday 7 January.

Having worked overnight at the site since September and during last month's heavy rain which brought flooding to many areas of Cornwall, the 14 strong team from Cormac Solutions Ltd are on target to complete the scheme by August next year.

Sam Ward from Cormac said: "The team carrying out the work have had a tough time with the weather to date and have done a sterling job to make sure we stay on schedule."

"All service diversion works on the St Austell Street side of the roundabout have been completed including the new gas and water mains which are now in use.

"When the team go back on site in January they will be working on the St.Clements Hill side of the roundabout. Works will include the diversion of water and gas mains from the roundabout to the footways and verge on the St Clements/Malpas side of the junction.

"This phase will take until mid Spring 2013 and will be followed by the improvement works to the roundabout and junction to Quay Street. We will provide further updates following the Christmas break to inform all of our continuing progress."
