53 local roads throughout Cornwall get £5m of repairs – list of works here

Improvements and repairs will be made to 53 local road routes across Cornwall – from Penzance and The Lizard to Bude and Looe – after Cornwall Council successfully secured £5m in funding from the Department for Transport (DfT).

Local routes – the more frequently used B, C and U roads known as the 3A network – are set to benefit from the funding boost, which largely focus on maintenance work.

The Council’s bid, announced by the DfT today, saw Cornwall secure the maximum amount of money available from the DfT’s Local Highway Maintenance Challenge Fund, with work expected to be completed within a year.

Councillor Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport welcomed the funding. “We know how important our roads are to people in Cornwall. Improving the condition of the local road network was one of the main themes highlighted in last year’s residents’ survey,” he said.

“Last autumn we announced an additional £2.9m for more than 1,800 road safety and drainage schemes which have now been completed and we are now well into work on our Growth Deal funded highway schemes at Bodmin, Carkeel, Tolgus, Treluswell and Truro.

“While we continue to work with ever dwindling budgets, we will continue to look to alternative ways of funding road improvements such as these, which we know are so vital to keeping Cornwall moving.”

This is the second time Cornwall Council has secured maximum funding for roads through the Local Highway Maintenance Challenge Fund. The Council previously secured £5m towards the £6.9m cost for resurfacing and making improvements to drainage and safety fencing along an 8km stretch of the A39 between Carland Cross and Buckshead Roundabout in Truro.
