A30 Chiverton to Carland Cross

A30 Chiverton to Carland Cross

Improving the A30 between Chiverton and Carland Cross is incredibly important for Cornwall’s future. It is the only remaining stretch of single carriageway on the A30 between Camborne and the M5 at Exeter and journeys often suffer with delays.

Taylor Woodrow, Arup and Ramboll were appointed in March 2019 to work with Highways England to develop the budget for the scheme and ensure that the design meets the project’s main objectives of reducing journey times and improving safety. Detailed design and associated site surveys start late summer 2019, and the project is expected to receive planning consent in early 2020 with works starting on site Spring 2020.

The scheme comprises:

  • A 9 mile, high quality 70mph dual carriageway, connecting to the existing A30 dual carriageway at either end
  • replacement of Chiverton Cross roundabout with a new, two-level motorway style roundabout
  • a new, two-level partial junction at Chybucca, with west-facing slip roads connecting to the new dual carriageway
  • replacement of the existing roundabout at Carland Cross with a two-level motorway style junction
  • new bridges and accesses across the new road and the old road
  • retention of the existing A30 for local traffic
