Region: South West

12 km
8 miles

Construction of a new dual-two lane road with grade separated junctions to connect existing dual carriageway sections on the A30 at the Redruth Bypass and Indian Queens.

This scheme is considered a low priority compared with others in the region and was overlooked for funding in previous spending reviews and funding allocations in 2005, 2008 and 2012. As a result, protection for the line of the new road was withdrawn in 2009. However, it was mentioned in the 2014 Autumn Statement as a scheme that would be progressed before 2020.

Cornwall Council are heavily involved in this scheme and propose to contribute some of the funding in the same manner as for the A30 Temple-Higher Carblake scheme. There is an aspiration to relocate workers and plant on completion of that scheme to begin work on this one.
