Investing in transport

We are working hard to get Cornwall connected and build the critical links between our county and the wider world.

Since my election I have overseen the delivery of the Road Investment Scheme to Cornwall. Once completed, the dualling of the A30 between Chiverton and Carland Cross will be the first green major road update in the UK. This £330 million scheme will be built to prevent harm to the local environment and will be the final piece of the essential dual carriageway between Cambourne and the M5.

I have secured a £50 million investment from the levelling-up fund to build the Mid-Cornwall Metro, connecting and revitalising communities with new trains, platforms, roads, bus links, and cycle routes. The Metro is on track to service up to 140,000 residents between Falmouth and Newquay, as well as all those who come each year to visit our great county.
