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."
