Speed Limit Consultation

A consultation is due to start on raising the limit to 80 miles per hour on Cornwall's busiest roads.

The government is thinking about putting it up on dual carriageways as well as motorways.

That means the A30 and A38 would be affected.

Campaigner Rik Jones said:

"If they raise the speed limit to 80 miles an hour expect high fatalities. There's going to be a lot more accidents because A) the roads aren't made for that kind of speed and B) people don't know how to drive at that speed either. If they're going to do 80 miles an hour they must stick to motorways only"

“The roads just aren't designed for that speed limit in Cornwall. I can't think of any stretches, maybe the A30 down Victoria way. But that's about the only stretch of road that I would even consider doing 80 miles an hour on"
