The A30 Temple to Higher Carblake Improvement Scheme
  • Devonport Lecture Theatre, Portland Square Building, Plymouth University

Save event

The A30 is of strategic importance to the economy of Cornwall and the South West, connecting Carland Cross in Truro to the M5 near Exeter.

The 4.5km section between Temple and Higher Carblake, east of Bodmin, is the only length of single carriageway along the route. In order to ease congestion, a scheme designed by CORMAC Consultancy to dual this length has been promoted by Cornwall Council, Highways England and the Department for Transport. 

Kier Infrastructure is the Principal Contractor. 

The talk, given by Dominic Primmer MEng CEng FICE, will cover the design and construction challenges of the new works, including three new bridges to replace junctions at strategic locations, the management of current traffic, and ecological enhancement and mitigation measures.

All are welcome; you do not need to be an ICE member to attend. Please note that there is no charge, but booking is essential to attend this presentation. Book your place via the ICE South West website.
