Plans To Fix The A30 Move A Step Closer
9:48am 4th December 2014
Plans to fix one of Cornwall's worst traffic trouble spots take a big step forward.
Officials are set to give the final seal of approval to fix the A30 at Temple.
They are expected to OK plans bringing in a construction company to turn it into dual carriageway.
Jams on the stretch of road can last more than an hour in the summer.
The £60 million scheme is expected to start in March.
It is hoped to be finished by summer 2016.
That can't come soon enough for campaigner Mick Martin.
He said: "Literally every day my phrase is we run the gauntlet, you literally do take your life in your own hands, speeding is a problem anyway, frankly it is just a single lane and the amount of traffic using the road every day, it just needs a dual carriageway.
"The sooner the better, and it will be a March launch for the whole thing, but to be quite honest it will be worth the wait now, it will be a little inconvenient whilst it is being built but no worse than it is now as it is single lane traffic, so bring it on."9:48am 4th December 2014
