Work officially starts to upgrade the A30 at Temple today. The 2.8 mile stretch between Temple and Higher Carblake will become a dual carriageway. The project will cost £60m and work is expected to be completed by 2017.
Police are investigating after a pedestrian was knocked down and killed on the A30 near Redruth at 00.30 am on Saturday 15th February.
The man was walking along the east bound carriageway when he was struck by a vehicle traveling the same direction.
It's not know if the bad weather was a factor.

The A30 is closed in both directions at Compton Chamberlayne, Wiltshire, between High Street and West Street due to a car accident which has also brought down some power cables. Police expect the road will stay closed for most of the morning.
