What is happening?

We will be carrying out works to improve the A30 at Loggans Moor roundabout, Cornwall. These works are part of the national pinch point programme. The pinch point programme forms part of the UK Government's growth initiative, outlined during the Chancellor’s Autumn Statement in November 2011.

When and where is this happening?

Construction is planned to start on 16 June 2014 and the scheme is estimated to last for 5 weeks. Loggans Moor roundabout is situated in West Cornwall to the east of Hayle.

Why is this happening and what will it cost?

Loggans Moor roundabout suffers from congestion and subsequent delays during peak traffic times which is signficantly worse during the summer months when tourism in the area is at its peak.

The estimated cost is approximately £200,000

How will the scheme be carried out?

We are widening the A30 westbound approach providing two defined traffic lanes for approximately 60 metres with additional lane road markings on the roundabout and creating two exit lanes on the A30 eastbound exit. We are also installing addtional signs to improve identification of traffic routes.

What are the benefits?

The scheme improvements will result in improved flow through the junction by increasing it's traffic capacity and improving identification of traffic routes and so reducing waiting times, especially during peak tourist times. The proposals achieve wider benefits in supporting growth in the surrounding area, such as development at Hayle.

How do I find out more information ?

More information will be posted on this project page as it becomes available. You can subscribe to be alerted when updates are made.

Details of scheduled roadworks are provided to help you plan your journey. Please note that works are weather- and resource- dependent and may need to be cancelled at short notice. This information is not updated in real time so please check Traffic England for current traffic conditions. Diversion timings are approximate and act as a guide only.

Will there be roadworks?

Yes, roadworks will be needed to create the additional carriageway. It is expected there will be minimal delays during the construction of the scheme but it is still advised that you plan your journey to allow for any extra time travelling through these works.

The total length of road works is 6.73 miles (10.78 km) affedting lanes in both direction between Treswithian Junction and Erth roundabout. However, works will only be taking place on Loggans Moor roundabout and it's approaches.

How will you manage traffic?

There will be a range of methods employed for traffic controls. This will include overnight temporary speed limits, convoy working, carriageway closures, slip road and lane closures. During the road closures, diversion routes will be in operation. A 40 mph speed limit will be in force most times during the works but with occasional 10 mph limit imposed during times when convoy working is in operation.

Will there be diversions?

Clearly signed diversions will be in place Diversion Routes will be as follows:

Treswithian to Loggans Moor roundabout: Westbound traffic to come off at Treswithian junction and take the Connor Downs County Road to Loggans Moor roundabout. Eastbound traffic to take the same route in reverse.

Loggans Moor roundabout to St Erth roundabout: Westbound traffic to take the B3301 through Hayle to St Erth roundabout. Eastbound traffic to take the same route in reverse.
