Petition Include A38 Saltash to Trerulefoot dualling in 2020-25 Road Investment Strategy.
The single carriageway sections of A38 in SE Cornwall are not fit for purpose as a trunk road and must be upgraded to dual carriageway standard. The current road restrains economic growth, severs communities, is a poor local access road and has an accident record 2-3 times the national average.
This section of road has a daily flow of 23500 vehicles which is over capacity for a road of its type. Currently the road does a very poor job as both a major trunk road and a local access road. A new dual carriageway road will leave the old road to be used as a high quality local access road for buses, cyclists and local traffic. It will improve safety and resolve the toxic air quality issues at Tideford.
