Improvement Works Network Rail

A reminder of the rail improvement works being carried out by Network Rail from Monday 1st to Friday 5th March between Truro and Par. They will be carrying out track renewals as well as working on a bridge at Trewoon. This will ensure that the railway can continue to run reliably and safely.

The line between Truro and Par will be closed, and replacement buses will run between the two stations (stopping at St Austell) and timed to connect with train at each end.

Hourly train services will continue to run between Truro and Penzance, will services from the east will terminate at Par. For more information, please visit

Most trains will use Platforms 2 and 3 at Par which is not step-free accessible. If customers require step-free access, they should contact our Passenger Assist team at
