Re M6 Mousehole services from Penzance, unfortunately due to the serious fire in Newlyn we have now been informed that the road will remain closed for at least another 3hrs preventing the M6 from serving Mousehole due to the unsafe building. M6 only serving as far as Newlyn.

M6 service can not serve Mousehole due to road works services are turning at Newlyn Quarry until further notice. Roadworks in Charlestown are still ongoing. We believe there are new ones due to start in Carlyon Bay today or tomorrow. ROADWORKS - Carlyon Bay / Crinnis. 04/03 - 15/03 Weekdays only (24hrs a day). Service 25 is unable to serve Carlyon Bay, Crinnis or Charlestown school, turning at Par Market and using the main road to Holmbush in both directions. Weekends normal route applies. M6 Penzance - Mousehole service is currently only able to serve as far as the Old Quarry and is not able to go into Mousehole due to the roadworks. It would appear that this situation will continue for at least the next 2/3 days. Due to a badly parked car at The Lizard L1 services may experience some delays. Police have been informed and we are working on a solution. All services in and out of St Ives Malakoff are currently being held up, this is due to an arctic lorry getting stuck and blocking the road.
