Transport Secretary promises improvements to A30 junction
A "nightmare" traffic junction on the A30 has been viewed by current Transport Secretary Chris Grayling during general election campaigning in Cornwall.
Cornwalllive.com reports he met members of the community on the corner of a residential street in Crowlas and Ludgvan were people have long campaigned for a busy junction to be made safer.
The minister said Derek Thomas, the Conservative prospective Parliamentary candidate for St Ives, had been "badgering" him to see what a dangerous road it was.
It says he promised to take the matter up with Highways England and that action would be taken, but could not provide a time scale.
"I have come to see for myself what Derek has been telling me about," he's quoted as saying. "I get the problem and I will take it up with Highways England about what we can do here.
Residents say the speed limit through Crowlas in particular needs to be brought down to 30mph and junctions which are the scenes of frequent accidents must be improved.
