Plans to make significant improvements to Loggans Moor roundabout, on the A30 at Hayle, have taken a step forward with a £12.9m funding boost from Homes England.
The money, which follows a successful Cornwall Council bid to the government’s Housing Infrastructure Fund, will be used to improve the layout of the junction to help ease congestion and cater for future housing and economic growth in the local area.
With funding now agreed, the project team will work on initial designs as well as engaging with landowners. It is likely that the layout of the junction will look very different to the current roundabout, with lanes running through the centre to prioritise A30 traffic and signals directing vehicles to the adjoining local roads.
Public consultation is planned for next year with the final design reflecting feedback received. Construction is expected to begin in late 2022 and the project completed in 2024.
