The Government recognises the importance of the A30 as a key strategic route into and through Cornwall. Widening of the 2.8-mile section between Temple and Higher Carblake was completed in 2017 as part of RIS1. We are currently upgrading the A30 into a dual carriageway north of Truro between Chiverton and Carland Cross, as part of RIS2. This £330 million scheme will mean the A30 will be a continuous dual carriageway from the M5 to Camborne. National Highways is assessing the viability of options for improvements to the A30 from Camborne to Penzance. This work, which is at an early stage, will inform possible enhancements as part of future Road Investment Strategies beyond 2030.
