On the 23rd December I made an entry looking at the progress of some of the principal road improvements in Devon and Cornwall. I mentioned that the Dobwalls by-pass scheme in east Cornwall had started; it seems that I was wrongly informed on that one because Transport Minister Stephen Ladyman has just cut the first turf there.
The 1.5 mile long by-pass to the north of Dobwalls is scheduled for completion in September 2008 I believe. This seems to be a generously long construction period and I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't at least partly open for the August traffic that year. Let's hope so anyway!
