A30 Won't Be Dualled Until 2016
7:01am 8th December 2012
A plan to fix one of Cornwall's worst traffic trouble spots is, itself, facing long delays.
It is after the Chancellor agreed to help pay to turn the A30 into dual carriageway at Temple.
But Pirate FM has learnt work won't get underway until 2015 and will last for more than a year.
A public exhibition on the proposals for the scheme will be held on 10th and 11th January in Blisland Village Hall.
But then the planning process is expected to take until November 2014. Building work will begin the following January with a target opening date of June 2016.
But local campaigner and councillor Mick Martin said that that the time scheme is still much shorter than on similar projects: “Traffic congestion on the main roads in and out of Cornwall is a huge issue for holiday makers, local residents and businesses.
“Not only will the Council’s innovative proposals help address this congestion and improve the lives of many thousands of people, it will do so at a much lower cost to tax payers and in a much shorter time than these projects usually take”.7:01am 8th December 2012
