Road cash could go
WHITEHALL officials could still pull out of funding an upgrade at a notorious bottleneck on the A30, says an organisation set up to improve employment in the county. In his autumn statement, Chancellor George Osborne promised cash to make a single-lane 2.8-mile stretch between Temple and Higher Carblake, near Bodmin, into a dual carriageway. First mooted 25 years ago, the £30 million scheme was among a bank of infrastructure projects Mr Osborne revealed were to be fast-tracked – using the announcement to underline how the Government was getting the economy moving. But the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) – a business and local authority coalition charged by ministers with helping boost jobs in the area – has warned the funding is only provisional. On its website, the LEP has asked local businesses to take part in a survey that will aim to show how the proposed improvement scheme will affect them. It states: "The Government has only given provisional approval subject to a business case and a strict timetable for delivery; without the economic evidence it could be all off." A DfT spokesman confirmed that Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin could either approve or decline the scheme once attempts to satisfy statutory requirements were complete.
