A30 Temple proposals latest


Members of the public are being given another opportunity to have their say on proposals for dualling a section of the A30 at Temple.


A two-day exhibition at Blisland Village Hall on Thursday May 23 and Friday May 24 will highlight minor changes which have been made to the scheme as a result of feedback from an earlier public exhibition held in January.

Visitors to the exhibition will also be able to watch an updated ‘fly through’ video of the updated design and learn more about the construction phases, the impact on Public Rights of Way and landscaping.

Those unable to attend the exhibition will still be able to give their views on the revised proposals by taking part in the consultation which is taking place from now until June 19.

Cornwall Council was given the green light to proceed with proposals to dual the three-mile stretch of the A30 between Temple and Higher Carblake after the Government confirmed it would put £30 million into the scheme.

The Council will match this funding, as well as finance all the preparatory costs of delivering the scheme on behalf of the Highways Agency. The scheme has been designed by CORMAC Solutions Ltd, the Council’s highways service provider.

Plans will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in August and it is hoped construction will begin in January 2015.
