RIS2 is a national £25 billion fund for road improvements from 2020 to 2025.
The A38 is the deadliest road in Cornwall but has yet to be included in this scheme.
If our road is not added to this scheme by the end of 2019, the dangerous junctions will not be upgraded or the dual carriageway started for at least another five years, if ever.
Transport Secretary Chris Grayling failed to deliver on his promise to fund essential safety upgrades to the A38
We are calling on the Government to:
- Provide immediate funding for short-term safety measures
- Improve the junctions at Bodmin Parkway, Lean Quarry, Menheniot and Stoketon Cross, funded under RIS2, starting work by 2021
- Build a new dual carriageway from Carkeel to Trerulefoot, funded under RIS2
- Build a new dual carriageway from Dobwalls to Bodmin, funded under RIS3
