Date for Goss Moor inquiry
A30
Supporters of the plans say the inquiry is just causing delays
A date has been set for the public inquiry into plans to turn a notorious trunk road into a dual carriageway in Cornwall.

The inquiry to consider the A30 over Goss Moor will be held on 13 January before an independent inspector appointed by the Planning Inspectorate agency.

The area being examined is a single lane stretch of the road which is between two dualled sections. Traffic jams on the single lane can last for hours.

The Highways Agency plans to divert and dual the road. But Goss Moor is an important nature reserve and environmentalists fear for the impact on wildlife.

The inspector will hear from those for and against the proposed plans at the inquiry, which is to be held in Bodmin.
