More residents invited to experience how Mid Cornwall Metro will transform transport links in Cornwall

Drop-in events

Residents and businesses in and around Penryn will be able to take a virtual reality balloon ride to ‘see’ for themselves how the Mid Cornwall Metro, funded by Cornwall Council and £50m of government Levelling Up Funding, will create a sustainable transport corridor through central Cornwall.  

Two engagement events are being held at:

  • The Stannary on the University campus at Tremough on Friday 1 March from 10am to 5pm,
  • Temperance Hall, Lower Market Street, Penryn TR10 8BH on Saturday 2 March from 10am to 4pm.  

Like the many who came to the popular events held in Newquay earlier this month, they can take part in the cutting-edge virtual reality and an immersive digital experience, created by digital design partners Digital Urban, as residents take a balloon ride over the Mid Cornwall Metro route from Penryn to Newquay.

They will also be able to explore the changes as a pedestrian or cyclist using a gamepad and visualise the new improved pavement layout using an interactive media table.
