A39 Atlantic Highway Camelford Improvement

Cornwall Council are inviting comments on proposals to implement a road improvement for the A39 Atlantic Highway to provide a bypass to Camelford.

The proposed improvement to Camelford aims to remove the through traffic from the A39, where it passes through Camelford, by providing a new road passing to the west of the town.

The new road will join the A39 to the south of the town to the A39 to the north of the town and have a number of benefits including;

  • Reduce congestion within Camelford especially during the summer tourist season
  • Remove HGVs from Camelford.
  • Improve air quality within Camelford.
  • Improve the centre of Camelford to make it a more vibrant community hub that will encourage residents and tourists to visit, shop, carry out business, and socialise within the town.
  • Improve the north south journey time along the A39 corridor.
  • Improve connectivity for non-car users by enhancing the provision for pedestrian, cyclists and equestrians around Camelford.
  • Environmental enhancement including new woodlands. Build on legacy of Environmental Growth projects.
  • Encourage investment in Camelford and along the A39 corridor
  • Reduce accidents on existing road network
