Plans to make significant improvements to Loggans Moor roundabout on the A30 at Hayle have taken a step forward with a £12.9m funding boost from Homes England.

The money, which follows a successful Cornwall Council bid to the government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund, will be used to improve the layout of the junction to help ease congestion and cater for future housing and economic growth in the local area.

With funding now agreed, the project team will work on initial designs as well as engaging with landowners. It is likely that the layout of the junction will look very different to the current roundabout, with lanes running through the centre to prioritise A30 traffic and signals directing vehicles to the adjoining local roads.

Public consultation is planned for next year with the final design reflecting feedback received. Construction is expected to begin in late 2022 and the project completed in 2024.



Reducing congestion and creating capacity at the roundabout will support the Hayle Concept Plan, which aims to shape future housing and economic growth in the town. The new layout will support the delivery of the first phases of housing and the 1,250 new homes that will be needed in Hayle to meet housing demand due to population changes up to 2038. It will also help with existing congestion at the junction and remove the temptation for drivers to make hazardous U-turns.

Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council cabinet portfolio holder for transport, said: “This is a great example of where we are working on improving infrastructure before new houses and employment centres are built. We are already beginning to see issues with congestion at the roundabout during the peak holiday season and I welcome this funding which will enable us to tackle the predicted growth in traffic.

“We are also working with the local community to help realise the ambitions of the Hayle Concept Plan which features proposals for sustainable transport in the town and helping residents to make choices about how they travel.

“In addition to the improvements at Loggans Moor, we continue to work with Highways England, local groups and local MP Derek Thomas to look at potential improvements to the A30 further west to Penzance.”

Sophie White, Homes England’s director of Infrastructure Grants, said: “We are committed to working with ambitious local authority partners seeking to meet their local housing needs through delivery of key infrastructure. Our multimillion-pound funding will resolve much needed improvements to the local road layout in Hayle, whilst unlocking critical housing sites and allowing the Council to deliver their vision for new homes."



Ed Halford, Highways England’s A30 route manager, said: “Working closely with Cornwall Council and Homes England, we’re pleased to be playing a part in contributing to growth in the Hayle area by helping to deliver what will be a major and dynamic upgrade of the A30 Loggans Moor junction.

“Our roads are vital for the country and its economic success - they connect businesses and communities and support employment and new homes. All of our improvements will ultimately ensure our roads continue to improve journeys and unlock the potential for new jobs and homes.

“The Loggans Moor junction provides such a vital link for communities and businesses, and we are working towards a design that not only increases capacity and improves safety but also provides high-quality provision for pedestrians and cyclists.”
