Transport

The Carluddon A391 Road Improvement Project will unlock space, create growth and improve connectivity.

Carluddon Road Improvements, November 2014

The Carluddon A391 Road Improvement Project is the first element of a long term transport infrastructure strategy that will unlock development land and enable the long term sustainable growth of St Austell and the Clay Country as identified in the St Austell Regeneration Plan. 

By improving connectivity between St Austell and the main A30 route through Cornwall, it will enable strategic spatial and economic development, including unlocking the ERDF-funded Carluddon Technology Park project.  The project will contribute to creating the conditions necessary to support the development of a new high value economy, centered on the Low Carbon Environmental Goods and Services sector, that will establish St Austell and the Clay Country Area as the ‘Green Heart’ of Cornwall.
