Views sought on Temple A30 dualling blueprint
THIS image shows how the A30 could be re-designed to alleviate traffic congestion at Temple, near Bodmin.
The Cornish Guardian reported before Christmas how Chancellor George Osborne had approved the £60 million scheme to dual the notorious bottleneck.
Now members of the public will have an opportunity to have their say on proposals during an exhibition at Blisland Village Hall on January 10 and 11.
Cornwall Council was given approval to proceed with proposals to dual the three-mile stretch of the A30 between Temple and Higher Carblake after the Government confirmed it would put £30 million into the scheme.

The council will match this funding and finance the preparatory costs of delivering the scheme, designed by Cormac Solutions Ltd.
The council said that initial discussions with residents and interested parties had helped inform the current design and as part of the official consultation process, the exhibition would give members of the public an opportunity to view the latest designs and have their say.
A computer-generated 'fly-through' and images of the planned route will be on display during the exhibition which will be open between 10.30am and 8pm on Thursday, January 10 and between 8am and 8pm on Friday, January 11.
"It is really important that people get involved in this consultation process," said Councillor Bert Biscoe, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for transport, highways and environment.
"We would very much like to get as many people involved as possible – it's your moor, your road."
Councillor Mick Martin, Cornwall Council member for Lanivet, added: "I hope that everyone is able to attend the exhibitions in Blisland and if you can't turn up on either day, there is still the opportunity to have your say – so please do."
