A £2million plan to turn two roundabouts into one at Treluswell is on pause after the Cornwall Council failed to get government funding.

The plans for the A39, near Falmouth, would see major roadworks at the busy site, however despite the rejection Cornwall Council has not given up on the scheme, with a spokesperson saying the authority would continue to bid for funding to "deliver this important transport scheme for Cornwall."

Adding: "Given that the current capacity at this junction could constrain future growth in Falmouth and Penryn the council will continue to seek opportunities for funding."

Main roads from Truro, Falmouth, Penryn and Redruth join at the junction, with long tail backs at busy times of day.
