Fresh petition to dual 'dangerous' bypass on A30

Fresh petition to dual 'dangerous' bypass on A30

Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 7:40am 19th September 2019. (Updated at 4:38pm 19th September 2019)

A fresh appeal has been launched to improve what is being dubbed a dangerous bypass on Cornwall's A30.

Mid-Cornwall Motorcycle Action Group has started a petition to dual the stretch between Camborne and St Erth.

Organisers claim the road has become lethal because of what it calls 'reckless illegal u-turns made by impatient drivers'.

The petition has notched up more than 320 signatures in its first three days.

Mid-Cornwall Motorcycle Action Group started the petition to Highways England after a protest on Sunday.

"The stretch of the A30 from Camborne to St Erth has become a dangerous stretch of road due to the reckless illegal u-turns made by impatient drivers. 

"We are requesting that this part of the A30 be changed to dual carriageway in order to place a central reservation to prevent this dangerous manoeuvring. 

"It will create a safer stretch of road where currently accidents are on the increase.  

"Current signage has been improved but is still inadequate and as there is no way of physically preventing vehicles from committing hazardous manoeuvres.

"There needs to be something adequate put in place".

The group are staging another awareness event on Sunday 13th October, between 12pm and 2pm.
