St Austell to A30 Link

The new 3.9 mile single carriageway St Austell to A30 link road will connect to the old A30 near Victoria to the north and the A391 at Stenalees roundabout to the south. It is a vital strategic link to bring opportunities to the area including: 

  • improving economic growth by upgrading links to St Austell from the rest of the United Kingdom
  • making it easier to get to Cornwall’s growing employment sites.

The £87m road has provisional funding from the Government and funding from Cornwall Council.

Complementary traffic management measures in surrounding villages and roads will be built once the link road is open. These may include:

  • HGV restrictions
  • widening footways, and
  • traffic calming to prevent through traffic
