Resurfacing and maintenance of the A30 between Chiverton and Carland Cross near Truro

A programme of resurfacing and essential maintenance will take place along the A30 between Carland Cross and Chiverton in October and November.

placeholder

The work will include resurfacing and repairs to the road surface, new road markings, drainage repairs, sign cleaning and vegetation clearance and will take place overnight to reduce inconvenience to road users.

To allow the work to take place it will be necessary to close the road in both directions between 8.0pm and 6.0am on the nights of the 27 to the 31 October inclusive, and the 3 to the 7 November inclusive.

Through traffic will follow a clearly signed diversion along the A3058 and A3075 via Quintrell Downs and Goonhavern.

Access will be provided for emergency services and local residents who will be provided with passes.

The Highways Agency’s project sponsor, Helen Phillips, states

By closing the road for this relatively short period, we can carry out these works quickly and safely. It also provides the opportunity for adjacent landowners to undertake maintenance works on their hedges and fences alongside the A30.
