Plans to Stop Traffic Misery on A30 go on Show
7:03am 10th January 2013
We're getting our first glimpse of the scheme to fix Cornwall's biggest bottleneck.
Plans to dual the A30 at Temple are going on show in Blisland on Thursday.
It is after the government agreed to fund it - pumping in £30m.
The Council will match this funding, as well as finance all the preparatory costs of delivering the scheme on behalf of the Highways Agency.
Initial discussions with local residents mean there is now an initial design, which is being put on display.
A computer generated ‘fly through’ and images of the planned route will be on display during the exhibition which will be open between 10.30am and 8pm on Thursday 10 January and between 8am and 8pm on Friday 11 January at Blisland Village Hall.
“It is really important that people get involved in this consultation process and I look forward to meeting them at the exhibition,” said Councillor Bert Biscoe, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for Transportation, Highways and Environment. “We would very much like to get as many people involved as possible – it’s your moor, your road.”
“I hope everyone is able to attend the exhibitions,” said Councillor Mick Martin, Cornwall Council local Member for Lanivet. “And if you can’t make either exhibition, there is still the opportunity to have your say – so please do.”
If you are unable to attend the exhibition, you can find out more about the proposals here. You can also write to; Engineering Design Group, Cornwall Council, Murdoch Building, Scorrier, Redruth TR16 5EH, email A30Temple@cornwall.gov.uk or call 01872 323313.
