A Planning Inspectorate has announced, the Communities Secretary Eric Pickles has agreed to look at the planning application for the proposed road upgrade to the A30 between Temple and Carblake.
Cornwall Council wants to widen the A30 Trunk road for nearly 3 miles between Temple and Higher Carblake and realign the existing carriageway to provide additional lanes, the central reserve and verges.
Junctions will be replaced with three separate bridges.
The Chancellor has announced today that the Government will help pay for a multi million pound scheme to remove one of Cornwall's worst bottlenecks.
The three mile section of the A30 on Bodmin Moor at Temple will be upgraded to a dual carriageway. During the summer there are long queues at the spot. The £60 million cost will be shared by Cornwall Council and the Government.
The A30 is closed in both directions at Hayle due to a serious accident. Accident investigation work is taking place between the St Erth Roundabout and the B3047 (Camborne West). It's affecting traffic between Penzance and Camborne.
There are long delays on the A30 near Okehampton. One lane is closed westbound due to an overturned caravan between the A386 (Sourton Cross) and the A388 (Polson/Lifton Down turn off). Emergency services are at the scene.
