A30 Carland Cross to Chiverton Cross Improvement


On 1 December 2014, the Secretary of State announced a £15bn plan as part of the Government’s Roads Investment Strategy: 2015 to 2020 to create better roads. The plan includes a £2bn commitment of investment to roads in the ‘south west’. As part of this are proposals to upgrade the 8.7 mile section of single carriageway on the A30 between Carland Cross and Chiverton Cross roundabouts to dual carriageway. The trunk road is the responsibility of Highways England so they are leading on the proposals.

Highways England has been consulting on proposals to improve the A30 between Chiverton to Carland Cross.

The consultation closed on 12 March. You can find out more by visiting the Highways England Consultation page.

This statutory consultation gave people the opportunity to express their views on the design of the proposed scheme before planning permission is sought to authorise construction of the project.

Thank you if you took part. Your feedback will help Highways England to improve the proposal before they submit the planning application.
