Woolwell to The George Junction

We're looking at options for a scheme to increase capacity on the A386 Tavistock Road, between Woolwell Roundabout and The George Junction.

This stretch is currently single carriageway in both directions, linked by dual carriageways to the north and south. It's a pinch point on this route, causing long queues and delays, especially at peak times.

With significant growth planned for the north of the city and traffic forecast to increase along this route we need to make improvements to reduce delays, congestion and journey times.

The Derriford Transport Scheme and Forder Valley Link Road are already being progressed but problems north of Derriford Roundabout also need to be dealt with. We're looking at putting two lanes in each direction between Woolwell Roundabout and The George, as well as upgrading the roundabout.

We've already done some work to see if the scheme is possible, and funding has now been agreed to develop the design, carry out surveys and look at the benefits and impacts of the scheme.
