Plans to fix the road dubbed Cornwall's biggest carpark have taken another step forward.

The cabinet of Cornwall Council have given the green light to negotiations to buy land around the A30 at Temple.

That should clear the way for a £60 million project to turn it into dual carriageway.

Half of the scheme will be funded by Duchy taxpayers, with the rest coming from the government.

Campaigner Mick Martin from Millpool said it could not come soon enough.

He said: "Safety is paramount for this bit of road. Weather and everything else causes problems on the road and obviously accidents, and we have had some tragic fatal accidents. But not only just for us, it's for the whole of Cornwall, business needs this.

"Each summer and now either side of summer, we get traffic. That affects local people, we have gridlock scenarios in our local villages. Tourism is the main one, people are stuck for an hour, hour and a half, what that does to the environment etc."

A final decision from the full Cornwall Council is expected in a month.
