A30 dualling plan moves a step closer
Plans to dual a notorious 2.8-mile stretch of the A30 near Bodmin have passed another crucial planning hurdle.
A notice has been published showing that an application to examine plans to redevelop the bottleneck between Temple and Higher Carblake have been accepted.
The public now has until November 22 to make any representations against the application.
Cornwall Council's cabinet lent its support to updated versions of the plans at the end of July.
The unitary authority had predicted that if approved, the new road layout would mean a £117 million economic injection for the county.
It was confirmed last month that scheme had been accepted for examination by Communities Secretary Eric Pickles.
If it is given the go ahead, work could start by January 2015 for a completion date the following August.
