Lack of Transport Infrastructure

The infrastructure in this area is simply not suitable for this scale of development.  The narrow country lanes cannot cope with the increase in traffic and the size of the trucks and tankers.  The route to the Quarry will go either through St. Keverne Square, turning right (which is not possible for a large tanker) to go past the primary school or along the narrow rural lane through Roskilly’s Organic Farm, (with literally a few inches to spare).

If it was proposed to extract the rock by roads, it cannot be transported from Falmouth Docks as they do not have the capacity to deal with rock armour. It is not practical or economically viable to transport rock armour by road from Dean Quarry to Swansea.
