Background

The A30 provides a vital link between Penzance and the M5 motorway connecting people, businesses and communities. Together with the A38, it is one of the two key roads connecting Cornwall with Devon and counties to the east. The section between Chiverton and Carland Cross has a dual function, providing both a strategic east-west link and also accommodating local traffic movements, particularly the north-south flow of traffic between communities and workplaces. The section between Chiverton and Carland Cross is the last remaining length of single carriageway between Camborne and the M5 motorway and regularly experiences congestion and delays.

The project will create a new dual carriageway to relieve congestion and improve access between communities, workplaces and local services whilst retaining a route for local access. Objectives of the scheme are to improve safety, reduce congestion, improve efficiency, unlock economic growth, connect communities, protect the environment and minimise disruption.

Guided visit

This site visit will provide an overview of the project and progress to date with a visit to the ongoing works at Carland Cross Junction. The team will give an insight into how they approach carbon reduction associated with the A30 project activities (and the activities of the supply chain) which is fundamental in ensuring that the A30 project helps shape UK infrastructure, mitigating and adapting to meet climate change.

The team will introduce some of the project innovations, including a proactive behavioural review for the implementation of plant people interface technology, the role out of a smart permit to dig system, the fully UKAS accredited onsite laboratory and plans to adopt a robot dog. Finally, they will share how they have managed the archaeological challenges of the project and show some of the artefacts, such as the flint scatters from the Mesolithic/Neolithic transition period.
