It is taking cars up to 40 minutes to travel just over five miles of the A30 this morning as a swell of bank holiday traffic hits Cornwall's roads.

Traffic monitoring system INRIX is reporting queuing traffic on A30 eastbound from the A390 Chiverton Cross roundabout to the B3285 Boxheater junction.

Travel time is said to be around 40 minutes, for the distance of 5.4 miles

The AA is reporting "severe delays" of 18 minutes and delays increasing on A30 eastbound in that area, with an average speed of 15 mph.

It says there are also delays of 12 minutes and increasing on A30 westbound between A3058 (Chapel Town / Summercourt Western Turn Off) and B3285 (Boxheater Junction), where the average speed of travel is 15 mph.

There is similar slow traffic on the A3075 Newquay Road eastbound from Perranzabuloe to the A3075 / Bridge Road at Goonhavern, where travel time is reported to be around 15 minutes.

Further west, there were delays earlier on the A39 due to a broken down vehicle on heading northbound from the Norway Inn / Perran Foundry area of Perranarworthal to the Carnon Gate Roundabout at Devoran, with congestion to Four Cross.

This has now been removed (as of 12.40pm) and traffic is flowing freely. 

Reaching Cornwall via the M5, there are delays of two minutes southbound between J29 / A3015 Honiton Road (Exeter / Honiton) and J31 / A38 (Okehampton turn off) with the AA reporting an average speed of 25 mph.
