Bill Mumford to tackle Marazion Summer Traffic Issues
Local Lib Dem campaigner Bill Mumford has been talking to local residents in Marazion about some of the issues faced by the town.
Bill said, “One of the main issues is the excessive amount of sight-seeing traffic that comes down through the main street in summer from the Helston road, instead of following the signs that would take traffic down the bypass to the main car parks in front of the Mount.
“Many coaches come down that road to give people an elevated view of the Mount.
"Marazion residents would like to stop so much traffic using the main street in summer. The town and surrounding roads need proper signage to deter drivers from this practice. People coming from Helston should be encouraged to go down the bypass and access the main car parks from the west end of the town."
As a keen cyclist, Bill also wants to promote opportunities for visitors and local alike to enjoy our beautiful landscape by bike.
Bill would like to hear from local residents about their concerns and issues.
