A38 - The case for action, Truro

About this event

The A38 corridor from Exeter to Bodmin is one of two strategic road routes across the peninsula, linking Cornwall, Plymouth, Torbay and Devon. The route has a notoriously high accident rate, and a lack of strategic investment to date means there is poor access between key centres, which is widely considered to be holding back regional economic growth.

In 2018, Sheryll Murray MP formed a Steering Group with local councillors, local authority officers, resident groups and local stakeholders from across the wider region to drive the ‘A38 – Case for Action’. This seminar will discuss the novel approach to moving the scheme up the political agenda, and the current plans to improve safety on the route.

Please join us for this joint Institution of Civil Engineers, Chartered Institute of Highways and Transport (CIHT) and AECOM evening seminar to learn about the ongoing campaign to improve safety on the A38 in Cornwall and Devon, and its economic importance to the area. All are welcome (members and non-members).

There is limited visitor parking available at New County Hall. The venue is also accessible by train (Truro rail station is a short 10 minute walk away), and by local bus routes.
