The 3.9-mile single carriageway road, with new junctions to provide local access surrounding the St Austell area, will link the A391 at Carluddon with the A30 at Victoria, supporting employment, housing, and regeneration in the area. It will run from the Singlerose Roundabout south of Stenalees, bypassing to the west of Roche to link to the A30 via the Victoria junction and is anticipated to be complete in spring 2025.
Cornwall Council Leader Linda Taylor said: “This link will make a huge difference for residents and businesses who have wanted it for many years. We put forward a strong bid to government and I’m delighted that the Department for Transport has now confirmed the funding.”
“It will bring further opportunities to the St Austell area, including economic growth and improved access to Cornwall’s growing employment sites.”
“There will also be five-and-a-half miles of new paths and routes for walking, cycling and horse riding, as well as a ‘green corridor’ of wildflowers, heathland, trees, and shrubs to support wildlife habitats, insects, and pollinators as we work to support active travel and biodiversity as part of this vital project.”
